To:  Interested Burrowes project faculty

The report below comes from Chris Hort.  We can expect to see steel going up within a couple of weeks for the construction of the South Knuckle.  As you can see from photos 1, 3, and 4,  substantial work has been done on the foundation of that knuckle. A good deal of interior work has been done on the core and the wings as noted below (see photos 2 and 5).

We are still on schedule for an end of the calendar year return!

Best, Susan

The exterior work surrounding the north and south knuckles continues as concrete pours are in process for the elevator shafts in these areas.  Once the concrete work is completed, the south knuckle steel will arrive around April 15 and the steel work starts there and then moves to the north knuckle next.  All temporary heating has been removed from the building and painting on the upper floors is about completed.  Drywalling is in process on the lower floors and they continue to work from the top to bottom throughout the building.  The steel floor in the mechanical room has been installed and data cabling has been pulled on the upper floors of the south wing.  The overall project schedule remains on track and the most noticeable upcoming event will be the erection of the steel around the knuckle areas that will be begin later this month.
If you have any project specific questions, please let me know.  Thanks.  Chris
