Building Update!

Everyone wants to know when the library will be re-opened. I still don’t have a definite date as so many things can speed up or delay the process. But overall, slowly but surely, we’re making progress. The flooring and shelving have been ordered.  The sheetrock and drywall have been put up.  Primer is being applied to the walls and painting will start next week. The elevator is being worked on and should be done in 3 weeks. Most important, the construction of the platform for the outside AC chiller units is underway. So far, they have taken down one of the concrete walls where the chiller units were. They are waiting for location services as they have to drill down 10 feet into the parking lot, and want to make sure they don’t hit any electrical wiring. Once they have that done, later there will be a steel platform, 6 feet in height, for the chiller units. The bathrooms are ready for tile work which should begin next week.

Building Update!

Building update: Progress is being made. We have pallets of sheetrock waiting to be installed, and workman finishing the electrical work. I'm meeting with the architect about flooring, shelving and furniture. Still will take a while due to the damage done to the AC and the elevator, but it's coming along.
