The contractor is sawcutting the asphalt paving on the Antioch side to prepare for curbs and sidewalks which will be started this week. The sidewalks and finish grading will commence as weather permits.
The masonry contractor has installed all the red bricks that we had on site. They have completed the masonry in all areas where the exterior doors and windows will be installed. The red brick for the South and West walls of the kitchen will be installed in late March. There are no doors or windows in those areas. The final masonry work will take three to four days.
We are also making preparations to receive the windows for the Parish Hall which should arrive in the next few days. The painter is painting the exterior exposed edges at the top of the windows openings. The temporary window frames will be removed and the new windows and doors installed as the weather allows. The contractor that will grind the polished floor is presently grinding the slab at the edge of the window openings so that when the windows are installed, they will not be damaged by the grinding of the remainder of the slab. The polished slab will have a finish that looks like terrazzo.
The hardware contractor has met with Father Gar, the Architect and Weldon Fate and will soon have the new locks for both the Parish Hall and the existing church building. The entire church building will have new locks and keys.
The painting contractor has started painting on the interior of the building. The floor and wall tile for the toilet rooms has been delivered and will be installed shortly.
The electrical and mechanical rough in is basically complete. Almost all the HVAC equipment has been installed and is operational. The majority of the Electrical conduit has been installed. Light fixtures will be installed after the ceiling grid has been completed.
In a few weeks the Contractor will begin the interior finishes in the building.
