01-20 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.

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!

01-14 Community Hub Update

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.

Lots of progress on the building this week in spite of the weather.

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.

What a difference a week makes!

Wood framing of the first floor is well underway. Last week our photos showed the structural steel beams and foundation. This week you can see the concrete firewall, which separates the hub side from the apartments. The apartment side is boarded in; framing on the hub side will soon be complete. Next step? Over pour for the second floor.

Visions recently received an updated timeline for the Hub Construction which we are sharing with you.

On Sunday a group from Visions known as our New Ministry Engagement Team did a site visit and a drive-tour of this area of Moncton to discover the various neighbourhoods.
The team includes Lori Ann Burns, Joan Hawkes, Megan Smith-Landry, Justin Landry and Peter Lightfoot.
Justin Landry is a data scientist, so he is helping us better understand the demographic study prepared for Visions last year. Knowing who is our 'neighbour' helps us communicate and plan programs and outreach.

The Community Hub is more than a building! CHET (Community Hub Engagement Team) brings together representatives from community and not-for-profit organizations who are working with Visions and the John Howard Society to engage the community. (Working alongside CHET is Visions' New Ministry Engagement Team).

On Thursday afternoon (October 29th) the YWCA hosted a Halloween treats event at the Beechwood Community Centre, which serves the residents of the housing complex on Joyce Ave/Beechwood. These families are our neighbours, immediately south of the Community Hub building.

Treats for the children

Visions United, the John Howard Society and the YWCA provided treats and pumpkins for about 45 children. Université de Moncton, which is also participating with CHET, donated some UdeM 'swag' for the treat bags.  Lori Ann Burns represented Visions. Sophie Roy, YWCA Program facilitator at Beechwood and a rep on CHET, organized the event.

The children came to the centre dressed in Halloween costumes! Some were tall, some were small but all went home with a pumpkin to decorate/carve.

Thank you to everyone who donated Halloween treats, and to Lori Ann for helping.
