Summer may be nearing its end, but construction progress is hotter than ever! In June, the wooden ‘Glulam’ beams above the Central Gallery were completed, and recently paired with a water-tight glass ceiling to encapsulate the new room. This milestone ensures better climate control during construction and enables an array of finishing work to proceed in the Central Gallery and beyond.
Framing has started on many of the walls throughout the building, including the Central Gallery, where architectural details from the exterior are mirrored on walls, entrances and overlooks.
We’ve also seen the first few coats of paint start to show up on walls, and we sure hope you like blue! In the coming months, there will be ongoing painting, drywall, trim and detail work as individual rooms near completion.
