The new Hilton Hotel located in downtown Cleveland opened at the beginning of this month, two years and two months after the groundbreaking. Donley's is proud to have provided concrete services on this amazing new hotel on the historic downtown Cleveland Mall. Our team along with Cuyahoga County, Hilton Hotels, Turner Construction, Cooper Cary, VOA Associates and Van Aukin Akins Architects are extremely proud of the work done for the hotel.
“More than 2,100 workers, cranking at almost record speed to be ready in time for the Republican National Convention,” cleveland.com reports (view full article along with more pictures here
). The hotel along with many other Cleveland projects such as Public Square are all helping to revitalize downtown!
VELOSANO IS LATIN FOR "SWIFT CURE"
Sometimes it can sound like a broken record, but at Donley’s, people really do come first. As we celebrate our 75th year in business, we are reminded of all the great individuals and families that have impacted the success of our business. Over the years, we have witnessed many members of our extended Donley’s family greatly affected by cancer. To lose a loved one, friend, neighbor, coworker to cancer is devastating. Precious lives end all too soon to this disease, and often medical professionals have little control over the cancer progression.
In Northeast Ohio, we are fortunate to be home to The Cleveland Clinic which is ranked one of the top 10 cancer centers in the nation. This summer, Donley’s will be participating as a Pedal Partner for the second year in the VeloSano Bike Race, held July 29-31, 2016, in Cleveland, Ohio. VeloSano is an annual fundraising race where proceeds are raised for cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. Unfortunately, cancer cases increase each year, and in some way or another, have impacted most of us.
As part of our year-long 75th anniversary celebration, we have decided to dedicate the month of July to community service. Please help support our VeloSano team, as a rider or volunteer. Please take a moment, visit the Velosano website
to learn more about this event.
We are excited about the opportunity to grow our team— called CASE HEC— and its impact on this great cause. Check out the link to our team page here
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
1. Rider- choose one of the five races, and commit to fundraising and biking in that particular race.
2. Virtual Rider- the “No Bike Required” way to fundraise(may be a great option for those who don’t wish to ride)
3. Race Volunteer- hundreds of volunteers are needed to help make this a successful event(may be a great option for those who don’t wish to ride)
Statistics from last year’s event can be found in the 2015 Annual Report (annual report.pdf
). Further information on this year’s ride is found in Race Choices (facts.pdf).
We hope you’ll join us in the fight against cancer!
Cleveland Clinic's new 105th Street parking deck is a 9 level, 3,000 space deck and will serve as an icon and introduction to the Clinic's main campus at its southern portal.
Donley's Concrete crews, along with the entire team, including the Clinic studied the book, The Toyota Way to learn how Toyota integrates lean principles as they strive for continuous improvement. In addition, Morning Huddles with all crew foremen from all trades take place each day prior to the start of work. Safety issues and concerns are discussed first, then expected deliveries, crane usage, individual crew activities, and finally, any information required from the management or design team.
First Run Studies have been conducted by Donley's Concrete team members prior to building major elements such as decks decks or core walls. It is in these studies that the crew foremen, superintendent, project manager, project engineers, and suppliers and other subs discuss safety and equipment requirements, review the formwork drawings, reinforcing drawings, and discuss means and methods of construction. This session flushes out many questions and concerns prior to work commencing.
The project is on schedule for completion in the 4th quarter of 2016.
