Gundale Ceiling
The Gundale Chapel ceiling is substantially complete.

Gundale Chapel– The chapel ceiling was finished last week. All that remains at the chapel ceiling is the installation of artwork (taking place in late November), which will hang from the cables (pictured, right). Other work in the chapel includes the installation of carpet along with the installation of a glass panel, which will be placed between the two wood panels comprising the feature wall.
