The construction continues to move ahead and the mason’s build of the block wall build was essentially complete 28 April with a picture of the universal washroom and dividing wall taking shape below. The framework is now set for the renovation to move forward.
While not directly related to the renovation effort, please note that river water is available to east and west harbours. Post flushing and test results received on Friday, potable water is now available in the west harbour. Potable water has not yet been turned on in the Clubhouse or East Harbour in order to preclude unnecessary system drainage as we integrate the system and convert the hot water tanks. This situation should be resolved shortly as the inspection of plumbing by City of Kingston is scheduled for 02 May and plumbing work by the sub-contractor will then be focused on the mechanical room.
Our architects (JLR) also have a commitment to review to ensure all aspects of design including engineering and they will be conducting visits and writing reports. They were on site on 28 April to look at mechanical and electrical installations and will assess structural aspects 02 May. Further inspections will be scheduled as required in order to obtain the necessary releases to allow for occupancy.
Remember that we would not be here without the perseverance of your Building Committee over the last three to five years. A Bravo Zulu for those efforts goes to Matthew Bol, Rob Toller, Donna Perrin, Jane Mackenzie, Pat Heffernan, Mike Ross, Mark Smelko and Phil Gertler.
