Construction is starting on the large lot behind my house. Since I have a ringside seat for all the action, I will post progress on the site weekly.
This week, construction equipment and materials dribbled in slowly each night. Since trucks can travel on inner city HCMC streets at night, deliveries by large trucks are made at night.
It is likely that the foundation construction contractor will start drilling de-watering wells to lower the ground water in the site area so that excavation can start later. They will also drive one or two piles and load them with large blocks of concrete for a period of time to test the load-bearing capacity of the pile given the depth to which they were able to drive the piles.
