Up-Date on New Valders Construction

Friday I took a walk around the new Valders Science Building and am providing the following.

1. Third flr has 90% interior walls in place (studs).

2. Second flr 75% interior walls in place (studs)

3. 1st flr just rough plumbing in place no walls.

Windows arrived and will be put in place starting in the next two weeks.

Exterior brick facing being applied 70% complete.

Friday we received 95% of our cable, wire and piece parts for the wiring job. I anticipate we will pull in the backbone voice cable and fiber the week of 11/19. Because the contractors are concentrating on 3rd and 2nd flrs our interior wiring will also begin on 3rd flr and work down. As a cost savings issue we will also be pulling in a new voice cable for the exisiting Valders remodel project and curl it up in the tunnels. I anticipate 3rd flr interior wiring to begin in early Dec.
