Tuesday, December 27: Work Continues In the Final Week of 2016

As 2016 draws to a close, construction crews continue work on the Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion. Last week, the final concrete pour for the floor of the skyway was completed, and 21st Avenue South was re-opened for through traffic.

    Precast exterior brick. There are just a few precast brick panels remaining to be installed in the stair area on the north side of the north wing. Those panels will be installed next week, completing the precast work on that wing of the building–with the exception of the skip hoist area; precast panels will be installed in that area after the skip hoist is removed.

  • Stairwells. The concrete pour for the steps in the north stairwell is complete. Structural steel construction of the staircase at the end of the west wing is expected to be completed this week as well. (See photo at right.) The concrete pour for the steps in that stairwell will take place Friday or Tuesday, depending on weather.
