  • The contractor is excavating the site to prepare the soils for the building foundation. A large rock field was encountered under the north half of the building, causing a slight delay while the team developed a soils preparation approach for this area. This was anticipated based on earlier studies

  • The building permit is being reviewed by the City. The design team is responding to City questions with the goal of receiving the permit by the end of May

  • The Public Works permit for construction on Jean Road is nearly complete and the team expects to receive the permit by mid-June. Work on Jean Road will start upon receipt of the permit or the start of summer break, whichever is later. This will entail lane closures

When we watch excavation happen it's easy to forget that we're not just digging holes and moving dirt, we're getting ready to build something amazing. Here's a flythrough video reminder of what is to come!

Lots of visible progress. The site changes every day. See some quick pics below. These shots were taken from the far west side of the site looking back toward the main building.
