Structural steel and composite decking is being installed in the administration areas and the two large lime silos have recently been set in place atop the structure.

In the coming months, the contractor plans to install roof insulation and membrane and to partially enclose portions of the building. Some site grading and paving is also planned to take place late this fall.

Inside the structure, process piping, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and equipment installation will continue and will gradually give way to interior finishes such as drywall, painting, and floor coverings.

Equipment and plant startup is on the horizon. Progress!
