Working in a Winter Wonderland

January 11, 2018

The “coldest winter in 30 years” as it’s being called, has definitely had an effect on our building project. The temperatures have just been too low for any work to happen safely or effectively. Our work site has been relatively quiet since the cold spell hit around the holidays.

This week however, the weather warmed up enough for things to get going again.

Masonry in the winter is a challenge

Six propane heaters (3 on each side of the wall) are needed just to maintain a working temperature

This is the boom that brings mortar and blocks to the masons who work on the scaffolding

This is a view from the east of workers removing the scaffolding. The exterior auditorium walls are complete.
