There is a lot going on inside the Hagfors Center this week (see below), but there also will be a bike lane and sidewalk closure this week on 20th Avenue South. McGough Construction has coordinated with the City of Minneapolis to effect this closure in order to complete some curb and sidewalk finishing work, dependent on weather, this week.
Construction Site Work
In the flexible classroom, crews continue installation of the ceiling, including lighting, electrical and mechanical fixtures.
In the skyway, lighting, sprinkler and mechanical work is underway in the ceiling. Hand rails will also be going in this week.
Installation of the donor brick wall continues this week. The photo below shows the progress of the ground-floor wall, near the main lobby area.
Progress also continues in the labs. The photo below shows a basement-level lab with casework installed and installation of lab tables in process. The carriers overhead will provide power, data connections, and exhaust for the lab stations.
The building’s air handling systems are also coming online. The photo below shows members of the construction crew commissioning the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems for the building.
Crews also are preparing the corridor floors for the rubber floor covering. The photo below shows the second-floor corridor, near the coffee shop, ready for floor covering installation.
