The contractor has finished grading the new driveway and will install curbs and the concrete approach this week. They will then install the asphalt paving on that entrance and we will start using it in place of our old 123rd. Street driveway. The completion of this driveway should take a couple of weeks, depending on the weather.
They have completed the rough excavation of the building and will start the concrete footings this week. The reinforcing steel and anchor bolts for the structural steel frame have been delivered. The Soil Inspection Co. will test the earth for stability this week and the contractor can start pouring concrete.
The Gas Service Co. and the Kansas City Power and Light Co. have met with the contractor and have decided where the new gas and electric services are to be located. Both companies made the decisions of where the services are to be installed.
The contractor installed temporary air conditioning units in the office areas. They are not quite as good as our permanent air conditioning system, but they are satisfactory.
Please remember to stay out of fenced areas for safety reasons.
