We are making progress. The concrete footings and granular subbase for the new Parish Hall have been completed. The next step will be low perimeter concrete walls. The structural steel frame should be started by the end of next week. We will be able to see the actual shape of the building. The contractor has removed the playground equipment and the concrete slab on the North side of the existing building. They will start the foundation for the Sacristy next week. The new playground will be adjacent to the existing Nursery. We will provide a new door from the Nursery onto the playground.
This week the Utility Contractor has started the storm sewer which will cut through the parking lot from the new Parish hall to the Northeast corner of the parking lot. The utility contractor will fill any ditches with gravel as they go and the trenches will be paved when all the storm lines are in place. We also plan to complete the new driveway and add a few new parking spaces next week. When the new drive is completed the existing driveway will be removed.
The contractor will not remove the existing kitchen until the Parish Hall is almost completed.
