Construction Update - July 2024

Project 2025 is out of the ground and you can really start to see the shape of the new addition. With the steel in place, the envelope of the new building is visible and by the end of September the exterior should be closed in at which point we will begin the interior features of the project.  Here We Grow Again!

Construction Update - April 2024

We continue to make good progress as evidenced by the latest time lapse footage captured in the video above. Since our last update we are happy to report that the south and east foundation walls and ground floor slab are now complete and steel columns are in place. We look forward to sharing our next update as we track Project 2025's progress out of the ground. Here We Grow Again!

Construction Update - February 2024

Project 2025 has seen a great deal of progress in January and February, and we are excited to show you the work that has been done through the time lapse photography (above) and photos (below). 

The weather has certainly enabled construction to move quickly with the milder winter we have experienced this year.  When work first began in November, the construction site changed a great deal.  We have had no construction delays to date, and we are pleased to share this update with you.
