The contractor for the new Loudoun County Courthouse is planning to pour concrete slabs for the building’s basement. Due to the size and complexity of these pours, extended work hours are required.
Construction will start before, and potentially end after, the contractor’s current allowable work hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Construction activity onsite will begin at 6:00 a.m., at which time the crews will set up concrete pumping equipment. Concrete for the pour will be scheduled to arrive at approximately 7:00 a.m. Construction crews are expected to be completed with their work by 9:00 p.m.; however, due to the need to complete concrete pours of this nature once they have started, work may extend later into the evening until complete, but not lasting past midnight.
Loudoun County has received the required approvals for the change in the work hours. Weather permitting, and baring any unexpected circumstances, construction for the first two of five planned concrete pours are:
- Pour #1: Thursday, December 3, 2020, with a backup date of December 8, 2020
- Pour #2: Wednesday, December 9, 2020, with a backup date of December 11, 2020
Residents should expect to hear increased construction noise, including truck back-up alarms, and they should also expect to see extra lighting during the early morning and evening hours.
Visitors to the Loudoun County Courthouse will continue to have access to the existing building. Free parking is available in the Pennington Lot and Pennington Garage, which is located off Church Street, approximately two blocks from the courthouse.
