November 2015: Construction of the building is now approximately 80% complete. Since the last report, the grand stair for the lobby between the first and second floor has been installed, as has the public stair between the second the third floors. Mechanical systems and ductwork are approximately 90% complete, and the electrical work is nearing 50% complete. Architectural concrete floors have been poured and are curing prior to grinding and polishing. The steel studs for many of the interior walls are now complete and doors and frames are being installed. Ceilings are being framed in preparation for their finishes.
The project continues to face cost increases and budget pressure. The contractor is projecting that the building construction will be complete in the late third to early fourth quarter of 2016, which will result in the Gallery opening in early 2017.
May 1: It certainly was a busy winter. Many milestones were met and the construction is now approximately 60% complete. The majority of the structural concrete work is now finished, along with the construction of the structural steel. Over the course of the last few months, much of the building has become enclosed by glass and the roofing. We are all looking forward to the building envelope being completed later this year, when the metal mesh panels and lighting are installed. Inside the building, mechanical and electrical work is moving along quickly and installation of the elevators is underway. Spaces and rooms are becoming defined with the installation of steel studs. Many of the the stairs are also being located within the stairwells. With the second floor deck space taking shape, it's not too soon to say that the views out over the river are going to be fantastic!
