Super Speed Concrete Home Construction Video

Check out a video of the Foundation level of the Clifton Concrete Home! This entertaining 51 second time lapsed video shows the unexcavated site through the basement slab pour.


Bartley Corp is back on site, so stay tuned for some more progress that will show the 1st floor concrete construction! Please enjoy, share and Like !! Yes this is the same video that was leaked from Vimeo last week (its also on ).


Putting our best Footing forward

Placing the concrete footings is the critical first step in achieving the building footprint. We matched all of the footing sizes (width & depth) and rebar spacing as defined in the building plans. By having the same company (Bartley Corp) do the excavation and concrete work, our customers have fewer conflicts, fewer extras, less trades, and no need to babysit the job.  With all of the forming ready, our footing crew called in the concrete ready mixed supplier and our concrete pumping company to assist us in placing the concrete. The footing pour consisted of  75 cubic yards of concrete over a 6 hour period and all went according to plan.

With the footings squared away, our concrete form panel delivery truck was able to unload the panels directly into the excavated hole using a crane. The crane allows the form baskets to be placed very close to where they are needed. This saves an incredible amount of time and physical labor compared to other companies who typically have a flatbed of panels unloaded in one location near the edge of the hole. In the final picture, the inside of the wall being set and braced. Why is this done? Stay tuned.

Excavation started but Rocky

We hit rock on the excavation of the Concrete home in Clifton. That line sounds a bit ironic, but dealing with rock & clay adds a lot of time, schedule slip, money and effort. The pictures from the Work Zone Cam shows Bartley’s progress on five (5) different work days. The excavation began in the far side of the site and is working toward the camera’s position.

Shots from the ground level provide a different perspective on the volume of excavation that has already taken place . In the first picture (below), look for the pink circle to see the location of the Work Zone Cam, the source of the time elapsed pictures. Much of the excavated material has been spread out along the entryway where the blue Bartley truck is parked. There is at least another day or two of rock excavation needed before our footing crew can come in a prep the concrete footings.

Work Zone Cam

To take time elapsed pictures of the Clifton Concrete Home construction process, we installed a Work Zone Camera on Thursday May 9th. Every 30 minutes we get a nice 6 megapixel overhead shot of the job site. Not many people are familiar with building concrete homes so the time lapsed pictures will provide a visual timeline. Here we show the overhead shot it will take (with myself pictured for a size reference). We also started laying out the cut points for our excavation crews. More to come soon!!
