Introducing THE FIELD, a Construction Channel Original Production. In our first season, we follow the story of Vesta Apartment Development in #Birmingham, Alabama. Vesta is an 18-story, three-building project that is being constructed by BL Harbert International and Cortland Partners. It is slated to be complete in early 2019. Vesta is the tallest structure under construction in the city in 30 years.
Located on historic Highland Avenue, the 390,000-square-foot development consists of 318 luxury units in the highrise and five-story midrise building. A 502-space parking structure is also under construction.
In this first episode meet Jimmy Shaw, project manager, and Greg Brooks, superintendent with BL Harbert. The guys discuss some of the challenges encountered with the unique geology and tight site conditions on the job site. Find out how they overcome these challenges and more!
Also meet Patrick Steele, project engineer with Cortland Partners who discusses his role on the project and a typical day on the VESTA project such as using his Robotic Total Station by Leica Geosystems.
Finally, meet Cody Jennings, superintendent with Russo Corporation. Cody and his team are responsible for all of the foundation and drilled shaft caisson work which the entire structure is built. Cody discusses his choice to stay with the family business and become a 3rd generation drilling contractor.
THE FIELD is directed and produced by Aaron Wright.
