Expanded Beaverbrook Branch: February update


Progress continues unabated at the Beaverbrook Expansion site.  The general contractor has started closing all the ceilings and this work should be completed within 2 weeks.  Drywall installation and electrical rough-in has been largely completed allowing for the painters to begin their phase of the work this week.  The Synstone exterior cladding system is being installed and will be completed by the end of this month.  The building’s elevator shaft has been completed and the elevator has been delivered and will be installed in the upcoming weeks.  We look forward to offering a site tour to Board members early in March to view the progress that has taken place in this construction project.

Attached are some photos taken on February 11th  showing the progress being made inside the building.
