After 3 more months of work construction is still steadily progressing. Electrical work has continued and is close to completion. Drywall is mostly complete, wood baseboard is being installed and flooring is being finished in many areas. The HVAC has been started up and the work to test and balance the systems has begun. The brick pavers are being installed around the building. The glass curtain walls are almost complete and the siding has been completed on the exterior of the new addition. The asphalt is being laid and it won’t be long before final finishing touches are being installed in the building. Check out the progress in the photographs below and look for another update soon!
