Fat Clay barely slows CVS construction: Target still October 2012
Pyles Excavating will remove layer of spongy clay, refill with compactable dirt, and concrete work for 12,000 s.f store at 803 Jamestown Street will follow shortly
By Ed Waggener
Concrete work was to have started today at the site of the new CVS Pharmacy, but an unexpected patch of "fat clay" slowed the program by a few days.
"Fat clay" is a spongy, mushy soil resistant to drying and compacting, similar to the surprise encounter school officials had when the entrance to Adair County Elementary School was being built.
Still, Paul Minneker of Chattanooga, TN, thinks that the 12,000 s.f. Columbia, KY, retail outlet, the sixth such facility he's built for the Woonsocket, RI, chain of pharmacies will stay on schedule. Minneker is the construction manager for Morgan Construction Company, the general contractor for the facility.
From Carrie Bolin Drive, the entrance will be only a slight incline to the main parking lot. The entrance on Russell Road is exactly street level.
The single entrance to the store will be facing the intersection of Russell Road and Jamestown Street. A single drive-up window will be at the back of the Carrie Bolin side, but will have two lanes. The outside one will have a vacuum tube, much like those people are familiar with at local drive-in banks.
Minneker said that from what he sees, the store will be 'mid-size' for CVS, in the same category as the CVS store at Broadway and Main in Campbellsville. "There are bigger ones and there are larger stores," he said.
From the drawings, the store will feature pharmacy related items, beauty supplies, a photo service, sundries, and a small line of groceries, including milk, bread, eggs, and coffee - not a full grocery department, but a good fill-in one.
Morgan Construction is already lining up subcontractors. Pyles Excavating, for the site work, was the first. Roney Plumbing of Somerset will do the pluming work. Masonry work will be done by Green River Masonry. Other subcontractors will handle other phases of construction including framing and heating and air conditioning.
