Building Committee Update

January 8, 2019

Happy New Year to All,

Since writing you in early December we have made good progress in areas of work that you can see and in areas that aren’t yet apparent.

To date, all of the construction that we can see relates to Legacy Hall. However, December was an important month for the other significant component of our building program, our nave.

During the last month, we finalized pricing for the architectural and acoustical renovations to the sanctuary with Phipps Construction. This work is scheduled to commence on the Monday following Easter Sunday and will be completed in time for Advent. Also during December, St. George’s executed a contract with John-Paul Buzard for the building of a new organ. This complex instrument will take nearly two years to fabricate, install, and tune. We expect to be listening to its beautiful music in the first quarter of 2022.

With respect to other ongoing work, we have completed the majority of curb work in the parking field south and west of Legacy Hall. A relatively wet December prevented us from getting the first coat of asphalt down before Christmas. We now expect asphalt binder to be installed next week and these parking areas to be largely complete and usable by early February.

Footing excavation began in the building pad in December and will be completed in January, followed by the installation of the masonry walls that will give form to Legacy Hall.

Construction of the bridge spanning the creek in the rear continues with the abutment on one side complete and the other underway.

One significant change to make note of is that the demolition of the porte cochere at the rear entrance has begun. As a result, access to this entrance and the rear parking lot is no longer available.

As the pace of construction activity increases, know that we are grateful for your patience as entrances and parking areas move. We are also very aware how disruptive these changes are to the Kindergarten and MDO families. Thank you for your continued understanding and patience.

I look forward to reporting more progress to you again in February!

Sincerely,

Cam Sorenson, Chair
Building Committee
