Paul Cable of CMW Architects said, “We’ve been able to pick up the pace quite a bit since the weather is cooperating.” He added that he arrived about 90 minutes early for last Wednesday’s meeting to review the progress of the structure.
Richard Mitchell of Codell Construction, the firm managing the construction of the Justice Center said, “We have the basement slab poured, and are no longer in a pond. We have a floor and have waterproofed it. The first floor foundation is 25 percent complete and we have the public elevator pit poured.”
Mitchell added that the project has lost a total of 54 days due to inclement weather since the beginning of construction in the early part of fall last year. He praised efforts of workmen on Wednesday for working through drizzle to pour concrete walls for the elevator.
He said that delivery for steel for the buildings frame had been delayed slightly, though anticipated to receive the beams on-site by the end of April, staying close to his original timetable. “We’ll have steel on the job and by next month, people will begin to see red iron rising at the site.”
