Phase I; April 18th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:
Another week down
Fire Marshall has also been on campus a lot this week testing fire hydrants and preparing for moving the Sub Acute's underground Fire/Water vault. Yes this means that next week will be full of inconvenience as we are needing to turn off the water to Sub Acute on Tuesday for the day. I have my fingers crossed for 4 hours but the contractor feels it will take them closer to 8 hours to get all the piping out of the existing fire/water vault, pull the existing vault, install a new reinforced vault, and reconnect everything. We have a contingency plan for 12 hours just to be safe. Be sure to be especially kind to Sub Acute staff as they are taking one for the team this next week and in their usual way are approaching it with positivity, flexibility, and tons of grace.
We were not able to pour the slab for the new residence this week but will be doing it on Monday. I know it will be tempting to see all that fresh concrete and want to put your initials in it but construction crews will be watching closely plus we do have some web cams up -- can't say you weren't warned.
Other elements to expect next week
