What an exciting week we’ve had at Columbia State! On Monday we poured the asphalt binder for parking lot B and also finished the metal panels at the STEM building. On Tuesday, reporters and cameras from Channel 5 News stopped by to do a story on the new Columbia State project. Follow the link below to see the story! On Wednesday, we had a yummy BBQ lunch from Jim ‘n Nicks to celebrate the continued success of this great project. We were pleased to have Dr. Smith, faculty from Columbia State, and members of the design team join our staff and subcontractors for lunch. Thank you to Dr. Smith for allowing us to be a part of such an important project. Dr. Smith’s remarks about how we are all a part of something special reminds us why we love what we do.
Over at the STEM building you’ll feel a drop in temperature when you step inside because the air conditioning units are up and running. The lab casework installation has begun at the Physics, Chemistry, and Biology classrooms. It won’t be long before these maple baron finished cabinets are filled with microscopes, Bunsen burners, flasks, test tubes, and graduated cylinders. Also taking place inside the STEM building is the terrazzo wall tile installation. Over at the A&H Building, the first layer of the curved wood substrate has been installed at the FCT Soundstage room. Up on the main level, the ceiling grid is going up and tile is being installed at the dressing rooms and bathrooms. Meanwhile, over at the ESS building, the brick veneer and hourglass shape ceiling work is in progress. See picture below of this cool ceiling look and the brick veneered columns.
