Gilroy Public Library

This 75,653 SF project consisted of a three-story concrete structure for a new community library in Gilroy. The team poured four, 64 FT long, three FT deep and two FT wide raked beams as high as 48 FT above the shoring surface. Due to an unforeseen electrical duct problem, Pacific Structures was unable to pour the slab-on-grade as scheduled. The team developed a creative sequencing approach that consisted of pouring the elevated decks before the slab-on-grade. Despite this difficulty and a very rainy winter, the team adjusted the plan and completed the project on schedule.

The health and safety of our employees and the people in the communities where we live and work is our highest priority. Pacific Structures is closely monitoring COVID-19 and following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and OSHA, as well as state and local governments.

We have comprehensive safety practices and are promptly adding the most current recommendations related to making our job sites and offices safe as related to COVID-19.

Our practices include key elements such as:

  • Social distancing protocols
  • Cleaning and disinfecting procedures
  • Extended training, monitoring, and reporting
  • Exposure risk assessment tools

To date, construction has consistently been designated as essential throughout the various county and state orders. This means that it is anticipated we will continue to provide our services to build the infrastructures in a way that provides for the greatest level of health and safety for our employees and the community. This includes continuing to follow the guidelines of the CDC and OSHA as well as state and local governments. We also understand the challenges this crisis brings to our employees, and therefore, the importance of maintaining our operations in order to help sustain the livelihoods of our employees.
