July 7, 2000
During June we saw the completion of all of the structural elements of the project from the North Wings to the Parking Garage. Also, the HVAC, water, sprinkler, fire alarm and lighting systems were continuing in all spaces with finish work now being the major effort throughout the interior spaces.
The site work, including the fencing and gate structures, is nearing completion and some of the landscaping preparation work and ground cover will commence in July. The major portion of the landscaping will not be installed until the weather cools down in the fall. Some will be in place for the last home game on 18 November.
There has been a significant increase in the amount of questions being asked about the Project and what new facilities will be included for the opening this September. Many of these questions have been asked during the various tours on site so this UPDATE contains some of the statistics we are asked about most often. Also included are some construction facts which may be of interest to those in the Engineering, Architectural or Construction fields.
