November 2018

 

Above average precipitation did have a slight impact on the schedule, rain occurred on ten working days of the project.  East and West parking areas were excavated and backfilled. Columbia Gas, thanks to the help of Senator Timilty and Representative Galvin, committed to installing the gas main on 11/26, but cancelled pending a PE’s certification of the plan.  At the time of this report, there was not a timeline for that. National Grid is in the process of scheduling installation of the electric service. Framing continued this month with the vestibule roof, interior wall framing, anchoring at shear walls and installation of blocking. The contractor installed shingles to the field of the slope roof. Roof work continues weather permitting.  The Installation of interior hollow metal door frames and exterior windows is in progress. The contractor installed venting for  the plumbing. The HVAC contractor installed ERV curb, exhaust vents on low sloped roof and hip roofs. Electrical rough in continues throughout.
