Neilson Library Construction Update, July 13, 2018

Due to forecasted thunderstorms and lightning risk during the use of pump trucks on Tuesday July 17, we will be postponing this concrete pour to the following day (backup date): Wednesday, July 18, 2018.

On Wednesday, July 18 the first major concrete pour will take place at the new Neilson Library. This will be one of the largest pours for the project and involve two large concrete pumpers and the delivery of approximately 120 loads of concrete via cement mixers to the two pumpers. One pumper will be set up on the site at 5:30 a.m. between Hatfield and Wright Hall. A second pumper will be positioned on the site between Wright Hall and the 1909 Neilson shell. The first concrete delivery will arrive at 6 a.m. and the final delivery is expected 15 hours later at 9 p.m. Read more...
