UAS FH Construction Update for 11/15/2013
Before & After
The Contractors work this week gives us some nice Before / After photos. Last Friday the Contractor had the big blue concrete pump truck on site pouring the ground floor concrete slab for Freshman Resident Housing Hall I. On Saturday, they poured the floor slab for the commons area and last Wednesday they framed up the first wall in Freshman Resident Housing Hall II. This week the framers finished the first floor walls in Hall I, the exterior walls in Hall II and will complete all the interior walls by tomorrow. The mechanical contractor is following close behind the framers installing piping. The Contractor is getting more workers on site each day and the work is progressing nicely.
I always get a kick out of Before / After photos. Whether it is looking at high school yearbooks, driver’s license photos or family photo albums, I find it interesting to see how we have changed over the years.
Puff ball clouds in the sky, snow on the mountains, fog on the lake, sun in the trees, frost on the ground and orange vests in the construction zone. What a fantastic view the construction crew has today.
Last weekend the crew had to do some night work and they said there was an excellent display of northern lights. Checking out UAF’s Aurora’s forecast, it looks like we may see some northern lights tonight.
