Earthwork has started

Very fitting that the week of Labor Day marked the actual start of real construction.  Edwin E. Thoreson, Inc. from Grand Marais is on-site doing the earthwork.  The parking lot for the Care Center has been removed and earthwork is taking place for the new addition.

Groundbreaking group photos

Hard to believe that the Groundbreaking Ceremony was over a month ago.  Where has the summer gone?  The construction team has mobilized to the site and is in the old lodge.  Here are some additional – professional photographer – photos of groundbreaking.

July 23, 2015 Groundbreaking

Well, we’ve officially started !  On Thursday July 23rd, 2015, the North Shore Hospital and Care Center hosted a Groundbreaking Ceremony to kick-off the start of construction for the new additions and renovations.  Many were in attendance from the hospital, the care center, the clinic, the Mayor of Grand Marias, representatives from Amy Klobochar’s office, DSGW Architects, The Boldt Company, USDA and AgStar.  After several stories and comments at the podium to mark the groundbreaking occasion, several groups helped shovel some dirt to commemorate the start of construction.  Afterwards, people went over to the care center and enjoyed ice cream.
