First week of December and no snow – this is good for outside work

The crews are loving the warm weather and have been making good progress outside.  They’ve poured concrete outside the materials receiving area, worked on wrapping up the Care Center courtyard and have been continuing their work on the main entrance.  Inside they have been finishing up Care Center 3, working on the kitchen area.  The Lab and Radiology areas have seen a flurry of construction workers.  In the new hallway between the clinic and hospital, they have heat and paint.

Happy Thanksgiving ! We are thankful for all the progress !

In recent weeks, we’ve had up to 75 construction workers on site.  With the sudden on set of winter, much focus has been paid to our exterior work.  Crews have been busy putting siding up on the 300 wing of the Care Center, new flag pole and parking lot light poles are installed, blankets have been laid where future side walks are to be installed, keeping the ground from freezing and the entry area is now water tight. Inside progress is being made on the latest Care Center Wing to paint the new door frames, install pass-through, tile the bathrooms and install low voltage in the hallways.  Progress continues on the new lab, radiology, mammography and the hallway between the clinic and hospital.

Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving !

Resident Social with the construction workers

On Tuesday, November 14, the Care Center Residents invited the construction workers to have their afternoon break with them.  The Residents made pumpkin bars and had other treats for the guys.  The construction workers were glad to stop by and share snacks, coffee and good conversations.

Happy Halloween – not liking the old man winter costume

There is always a scurry of exterior work with the first forecast of snow.  Outside crews have been busy working on the concrete slabs, curbs & gutter.  On the Care Center side they have been working on the future secure courtyard.  Inside the crews have started the finishing touches on the curved hallway connecting the clinic to the hospital by putting up the vapor barrier and sheetrock.
