Things are also progressing in the interior. The new church basement now has complete dry wall and is ready to be taped, while the fire dampers will also be connected and made operational this week. Duct work for the new HVAC unit is mostly installed. The historic church building now has power again and will soon have new carpet installed and a final coat of paint and finishing. After more than two years of vacancy, the church building will be the first part of the new complex that will be operational and occupiable. The door between the old and new building has also been framed and dry walled and the doors have been installed, with installation to finish this week.
On the main level of the Community Centre, duct work will begin to be installed this week. The last of the dry wall will also be finished this week, while the ceiling in the link hallway will be completed in two weeks. We are excited that power has been supplied to the new building and is connected to the panels. It is ready to connect to the terminals in the building in the coming weeks. This means that the light fixtures will can be installed in the coming two weeks and then bathroom fixtures will be installed in the main floor washrooms. The millwork for the kitchen and the washrooms will also be installed in the next two weeks. The flooring on the main level will go in last.
The lower level dry walling in the Community Centre has begun and will be completed in a couple of weeks. The natural gas line has already been connected, while the plumbing lines have been mostly installed and will be completed in a couple of weeks. It will take a little bit longer to finish the plumbing and the electrical, as well as the suspended ceiling.
Other exterior details, including landscaping and signage, will begin in about three to four weeks. The elevator installation will begin in about two weeks. We continue to pray for excellent weather and a real team effort to gain occupancy ASAP. Thank you to all of the contractors who have worked very hard in challenging conditions to make our community dream a reality.
