03-17 Community Hub Update

The construction site at 140 Joyce Avenue continues to be a busy place!
Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

It's been a few weeks since we've had a peak inside the Hub building.

Progress on the apartment side includes insulation and installation of shower/bathtub fixtures.

The second story concrete floor has been poured on the Hub side and the walls are framed. The main stairway is built and the elevator lift shaft is framed, ready for installation.
Staging fills the entire multi-purpose room to enable the installation of duct work and the steel beams and framing for the room dividers above the ceiling.

We are still on schedule for August 1st occupancy!

These are cold winter days for construction work! .

We won't see a lot of dramatic changes on the outside of the building now that windows are in and the outside is insulated. But take a look at the firewall now: notice the difference? The concrete has been covered over with insulation and wrap.

Most work is happening inside these days. We are saving the pictures of the inside for next week's update. Stay tuned for some great photo shots!

This picture is of the interior of the Multi-purpose/Great Room where Visions will hold our Spirit Gatherings. Notice the steel beams supporting the higher ceiling. You can also see the bank of double windows along the front wall, facing south, which will provide the room with lots of natural light. The passive heat from this room is integrated into the heating system for the entire building.

Brian Affleck visited the site this week and took these pictures. Brian will be installing the audio-visual system. He met with the electrician, as well as the company installing the technology infrastructure, to confirm plans. This coming week Netco Electric will install and pull all the wiring and cabling needed for these projects as they do the electrical rough-in.

Thank you, Brian, for the sneak peak!

Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

It's a new year and construction continues on the Community Hub building, 140 Joyce Ave, to ensure the building is weather-tight for inside construction.

Roofing on the apartment side is completed. Windows have been installed. Tyvek wrap complete, and strapping ready for installation of siding.
 
Construction is a bit further behind on the Hub side as there were earlier delays waiting for special trusses to arrive to accommodate the cathedral ceiling and roof line over the multi-purpose/Great Room. Shingling began this week. Maybe our next update will show the windows installed! Stay tuned.

It has been exciting watching the construction progress especially these past few weeks. Today was especially chilly for the workers at close to -10 degrees before wind chill! The harsh cold didn't stop them from singing while they worked on the second story. What a joyous sound!

Check out the photos to see how the apartment side of the building has the roof framed.  You can see that the Hub side's second floor is now framed.
