A milestone was achieved this past month when the structural steel framing for the library and arts center reached completion.  This milestone was commemorated with a “Topping Out” event which is typically acknowledged in the construction industry when steel framing is complete and other trades can begin their work.  Metal decking has been installed on the second floor of the library and the perimeter block wall for the site is substantially complete.

This month the site utilities continued, the building masonry retaining walls began and the concrete for the slab-on-grade at the Library started.

Construction continued throughout the month of March at the new Public Library and Cultural Arts Center site. Following several days of weather delays, rough grading began along with the coordination for the site utility connections on Lakeview Avenue. The piles for the North and East retaining wall shoring were installed and the Lakeview Avenue storm drain bypass is now complete.

A significant number of rain events since the January 5 groundbreaking have resulted in delayed progress at the Public Library and Cultural Arts Center site; however, measures are being taken to recover and reduce significant schedule delays. Last month, water trucks were enlisted by the contractor to haul ponded water from the site in an effort to get the site back to a condition where grading can resume.  Above is the latest aerial footage of the construction progress.
