Expanded Beaverbrook Branch: January update


Work slowed down at the Beaverbrook Expansion site during the Christmas and New Year holiday period.   Interior studs were set to be completed by December 24th. First floor plumbing is completed, while electrical rough in is now nearing completion.  This week the contractor will begin closing in and insulating all walls. Exterior wall insulation is nearly finished so that the installation of metal siding can commence later this week.  Once the dry walling nears completion and the final main stairway is installed we should be able to offer site tours to Board members.  We are hoping this can take place in February.

Attached are some photos taken on December 19th  showing the progress being made inside the building.
