IMG_7952 webConstruction Update – November 4

Workers this week are finishing “slab on grade” foundation work and beginning roughing in and framing the building’s interior. Crews also are expected to start framing the large glass walls that will make up the main entrance on the north and northeast sides of the building. Ninety percent of the building is expected to be enclosed by Thanksgiving, which will allow interior construction work to ramp up through the winter months – installation of heating and cooling system, electrical conduit, metal studs, drywall and similar work.
