The roof of Building D is almost complete and the contractor will then proceed to work on Building G roof and the covered walkways. Exterior framing is complete on Buildings A, B, C, D, and G. Exterior framing continues on the walkway soffits and Building E. The contractor is installing the exterior metal panels and continuing with the paper and lath installation on all the buildings. Window installation is ongoing in Building A, B, and C. Sheetrock installation and plastering is ongoing in Building A, B, and C. Contractor is completing interior framing, rough mechanical, rough plumbing, and rough electrical in Buildings D and G.
