Warning: Hard Hat Area
(myself and fellow newsies Jessica Williams and
Darwin Gooding don the hard hats for the tour)
Local media was given a tour of the on-going Civic Center expansion and renovation project Tuesday.
Graham Construction led the tour through what will be the new curling rink, Canadian room, and renovated Civic Center.
They say the job is about half done. The focus will be on the hockey side of things to get the building ready for the start of the season.
I would post pictures but I don't think they'd be all that interesting yet.
It's kind of like looking at a skeleton. Structurally almost everything is in place with the cinder block and concrete. It's still tough to picture the finished product - none of that work is even really close to starting. They plan to really get going on that aspect in the coming weeks.
There will be about 80 on-site workers over the summer months.
Just one more workday for me until an extended long weekend.... should be good.
