The rebar and foundation wall forms continue to be installed on Mat 3.  Concrete can be expected to be poured within 2-3 weeks.  Additional photos below depict areas that are being excavated around North Wing caissons for the forming of pile caps.


While much of the construction is currently outside, there is also work happening beneath our feet in utility tunnels.  The new lines shown below are being installed to accommodate additional tie in points for the new building's demand, and to remove old lines from the site of new construction.
