Construction work in the fall was focused on the rerouting of utilities and excavating dirt from the site. Fundraising also been remained a high priority as well, with over $12 million in gifts and commitments secured as of late November.
In the winter months of early 2019 after excavation is complete, footing and foundations are scheduled to be poured and steel structures set in place while a mechanical building to house new equipment for chilled water is constructed. Work on the bell tower will happen as well.
Tasks such as enclosing the main building, pouring concrete and installing electrical and mechanical systems are planned for next spring and summer with the fall dedicated more to interior finishes. The project is expected to be complete by the end of April 2020.
