AIA/AIAS Fall Tour of UVA Hospital Expansion

On Tuesday, December 5th, we will be hosting a tour of the UHE for the local AIA and AIAS Chapters!

 

The tour will commence at the jobsite trailer with an introduction to the project and team followed by Stretch and Flex and a “Hard Hat” tour.  The onsite portion of the tour will start with a view of the project from the top of the Lee Street parking garage followed by a tour of the site.  We also hope to provide a short presentation on how we are using VR during CA.

 

Parking on site is EXTREMELY limited and the gravel lot at the job site trailer is reserved for Skanska, Perkins+Will and UVA’s employees. It is therefore recommended that tour participants carpool or take public transportation. The Lee Street and 11th street parking garages are located across the street from the job site trailer.

 

Tour groups will be limited to 20 or less. More than that and we will have a hard time communicating with the group. We also want to limit the tour group size for safety.  We can break up larger groups into separate groups of 20, if needed.

 

In order to participate in the tour, the following PPE is required:

 

ANSI approved hard hat

Gloves – Cut level 3

Safety Toed Work boots that cover ankle at a minimum

ANSI approved Safety glasses (eyeglasses do not count)

ANSI high visibility clothing/vest

               Long pants

 

Skanska will have extra hard hats, gloves, glasses, OSHA toes(slip-on safety toes) and vests on site to loan to participants who do not have their own.

 

Looking forward to it!
