This is a view from the 11th floor of City Hall. Over last few weeks much attention has been focused on inside tasks. These pictures show progress on roof and rapid “greening” of Santa Clara Stree trees.
Framing progress continues in the eastern section of the building. We will have three pre-school rooms that will also double as classrooms during church services. The first pre-school room to be framed is “123”, located next to the sanctuary and adjacent to the youth room and multi-use room.
These pictures were taken May 23rd. Progress continues on all floors. Sheet rocking team is working on several areas.
The Youth Room Entry Way and Multi-purpose room entry are taking shape.
Sanctuary sheet rocking well along.
Second floor framing continues.
Materials are on third floor to build privacy fencing around HVAC.
The area at the top of the south stairs on the second floor will be used to view services during overflow periods and when families with children that may not be ready to sit through a service want to observe. There will be a flat screen TV on the wall and speakers to enjoy the service.
At other times this space is expected to provide a gathering area for small groups or a private area for reading and quiet time. Some have called this the “quiet spot” although it could be otherwise when used as the “crying room”.
Here are two pictures from May 23rd. This first one is taken from the north looking to the quiet space from what will be the conference room entry.
The fire marshal has a very strong input into new construction. Many new buildings require fire proofing materials to be added to steel truss and support areas when they may be enclosed or above occupied space.
The pictures below show the fire proofing material being added to the truss structure in the western section of the building.
Yesterday the concrete was placed for the second floor and stairwells. Here are a few pictures taken today.
The beams at the corner of the atrium are now in place. The Davison team is wrapping up details on both stairways and has some additional truss work remaining. They are planning to finish up by next week.
