Construction Progress

  • New Neilson

Neilson Library Construction Update, January 28, 2019

Steady progress has been made on the Neilson project over the winter recess. Favorable weather throughout most of December and early January has provided the opportunity to make up on some of the time lost due to the extraordinarily wet fall. Since the last update on December 14, 2018, the contractor has completed several of the large concrete mat slab pours in the core 1909 building and they are very close to having a contiguous lower level mat slab from the north addition to the south addition. With the final pours over the next month, they'll be ready to start accepting the structural steel at the site and mobilize the crane to begin erecting the structural steel. Steel erection will start in a big way around the end of March.
