Construction update: South work continues; caissons for north scheduled for next week
Interior work on the first, second and third floors of the south gateway addition along Cache La Poudre Street, as pictured, continues this week with more of the exterior brickwork going in along the first floor down to sidewalk level.
The work is part of the ongoing three-phase, $27 million renovations and new constructions project at the El Pomar Sports Center.
The steel for the new entrance to the Schlessman Natatorium (which remains open until Aug. 7) was fireproofed. It awaits glass installation.
The south stairs to the new addition, which will includes offices, meeting rooms and classrooms, were being enclosed on Wednesday. The south addition should be enclosed by late June.
Work on the caissons for the north fitness center addition’s foundation is scheduled to begin on Monday. More earth-moving equipment was at work on Wednesday.
