As of today, the following has been accomplished for ESG (H1).
The pre-engineered steel building is fully insulated meeting Massachusetts commercial building codes and standards.
Temporary electrical service has been installed and was inspected for both the building and construction trailer and the lights have been turned on.
Stamped Civil Engineering drawings detailing gas lines and water lines for fire suppression and domestic water have been received. ESG is currently working with its contractors and customer on dates when site excavation and preparation will begin. ESG is working with its vendor for design and layout of interior fire suppression.
ESG is waiting for stamped MEP drawings for the layout of the interior of building. Also, included in those drawings will be exterior electro/mechanical designs for the switch gear, transformers and controls for the sound attenuated containerized natural gas generators.
It is expected that excavation for both the interior and exterior of the building will commence within the next 10 – 15 business days once the contractors, vendors, customer and ESG reach on consensus on mobilization.
As was stated previously, this is a very fluid environment and we are working very closely with our customer, vendors and contractors to maintain this momentum.
Another update will be provided at the end of November 2020.

Week ending 09-25-2020
On Thursday August 13th, 2020 ESG Clean Energy, LLC once again began the next phase of construction of our pre-engineered building that will house the post combustion equipment that will manufacture distilled water, capture and sequester the lion-share of the exhausted Carbon Dioxide (CO2) exhaust (net-zero carbon footprint).
As of today, the walls, roof, gutters and downspouts have been installed, and all exposed steel has been primed and painted with 2 finish coats of high gloss oil-based paint. Temporary electrical service has been in inspected and installation will be completed by the end of next week. Installation of thermal insulation that meets Massachusetts commercial building codes begin early next week as well.
Once we receive stamped engineered mechanical/electrical drawings we will then begin site preparation for installation of our domestic water lines for both fire suppression and building usage. At the same time that work is being done we will be running natural gas to the building, as the building will be metered for both HVAC and for the generators. The design and layout of the interior of the building with utility room, office, test lab and lavatory will be next. Once that is complete, excavation for the concrete floor or slab along with drainage and equipment footings will be poured.
Once that process is finished, we will further compact the front of the building, place crushed aggregate (stone) that is water permeable and prepare for the arrival and installation of the electrical distribution switch gear and the sound attenuated, containerized generators.
This is a very fluid environment and we are working very closely with our customer, vendors and contractors to maintain this momentum.
Another up date will be provided at the end of October 2020.
