Construction Update

UPDATE 12/7/2017

Significant site-work has been conducted along NW Market Street, including the installation of landscape irrigation and utility lines; concrete pours for the curb and sidewalk; and installation of the pedestrian lights. The East Garden has been excavated, and concrete pours for retaining walls are in process.

Regarding the building envelope, the skylights have been installed, and the Cembonit siding is complete at the west, east, and north locations. The curtain wall at the west entrance is complete and only needs to receive several lights of glass before the vestibule is installed. 

Parking lot asphalt is anticipated to be complete this week, and concrete pours at the Sun Terrace will continue through mid-December, depending on the weather. The building has received permanent power; water service will be obtained shortly. Concrete floors throughout the building are presently being polished. Installation of the bridges across the length of Fjord Hall has been initiated, and the beautiful hemlock walls and ceiling in the auditorium are nearly complete! On December 11, Pacific Studio will initiate exhibition staging and installation work inside the building.
