During the construction of any building, inevitably there are times of tremendous excitement. For example, when bulldozers and other equipment begin to excavate and move dirt around, it is fascinating to watch. There are immediate visible signs of progress and observers begin to realize that the promise of a new facility is going to be fulfilled. Another moment of such excitement is when the steel is erected. The building then over time begins to take shape and its mass becomes obvious. Although our Fieldhouse project has been subject to a few delays, the work taking place this week is a sign of the good things to come. The mild weather will be an asset to us in the next month as our general contractor works to get the building envelope closed prior to the first snow. It is fun to watch, whether you are a child or adult.
