The Assemble 5051 centre avenue

The Assembly (5051 Centre Avenue)

Donley's recently completed its work for Turner Construction on The Assembly Project at 5051 Centre Avenue in Pittsburgh. The Assembly will pioneer Pittsburgh's newest high-tech developments in cancer biomedical research and commercialization, anchored by the University of Pittsburgh. Donley's provided concrete services for the new three-tiered parking garage and lower floor next to the building.

The location of the Assembly project with respect to adjacent structures presented unique logistical challenges that the team was able to overcome through extensive planning and coordination efforts with Turner's operations team.  An earth retention system consisting of steel soldier piles with wood lagging and tie-backs extends more than 50' below street level to create the west and south boundaries of the project. At the same time, the existing century-old Ford Building intersects the new underground garage along its north side.

Donley's engineering team utilized state-of-the-art laser scanning technology to map out conflicts between the as-built earth retention system and the proposed structural concrete framing of the garage. Detailed drawings and reports were then provided to the design team in advance of garage framing, resulting in design modifications of the garage to accommodate the as-built conditions without any delay to the project's schedule.

Donley's delivered the project safely and successfully on time over an aggressive 10-month schedule during the COVID-19 pandemic.
