More framing. More concrete. The crews are moving the project along very quickly!
And a panoramic view of the inside of the office wing before interior walls are completed:

Most of the exterior walls are up and the crew is beginning to work on interior walls. Two panoramic views for you today!

More walls — it is beginning to look like a building! We think that all of the exterior walls will be vertical by sometime on Wednesday of this week. The second half of the rear walkways will be poured tomorrow.
Let’s start with a few panoramic views. First is the look at the entire building site from the contractor’s trailer:
Second is a view from the plaza looking at the back of the office wing:

Walls began to go up today. Concrete was poured for the retaining wall at the rear plaza. Forms came off the concrete pilasters around the rear plaza. Concrete was also poured for the walkways outside the conference room and the office wing.

Sill plating has started! It won’t be long before we see walls being constructed and lifted into place! Additional concrete was poured: a retaining wall footing, the pilasters around the plaza, and the other wing for the rear steps.

Layout for sill plating, forms for the pilasters around the rear plaza, foundation perimeter drains.

We checked the slab for cracking and found little had changed from the May 3 visit. We’re hopeful that this means cracking will be quite minimal.
Here are several panoramic views to help you better visualize the building site.
Sill plates will be installed this week. That means that we will see framing begin very soon!

Cleanup day: forms were stripped from the slab, revealing a good pour. Some cracking is expected, and we are seeing very minor hairline cracks in a few places; we may see more as the slab cures. Most of the floor will be carpeted so minor cracking will not be an issue.

Milestone day! The monolithic concrete slab was poured! We also made good progress on the rock retaining wall on the south side of the open plaza.

The concrete pour to form the building slab is scheduled for tomorrow, so this photo set features a lot of work in preparation for that milestone.
