We’ve been quiet but things are moving along:
- The key fobs have taken longer than expected due to delays for some equipment we ordered but we have it now. The gym door and mirrors should be installed today and we expect the fobs to be operational before the end of this week. As soon as we get the green light we’ll start issuing key cards to gym members and open it up for use. The mirrors are also being installed this week.
- Building #5’s facade work is moving along rapidly and, according to the latest estimates, wing 2958 will be done in a couple weeks and wing 2960 will be done in January. This means building #4 will begin that same month. There’s also a real possibility our contractor will do two buildings at once. It’s being discussed now. We very much want it because it gets them out of our lives in two years instead of four and we save a lot of money on insurance, sidewalk bridging, professional fees, and other stuff. We’ll keep you posted.
- We had to back off our intercom plans because the touchscreen system we chose was a bit too vulnerable to some of the savages passing through our lobbies. We couldn’t find a good way to install and protect it because, by its very nature, it has to be accessible to people touching it. We’re exploring a sturdier phone-based system that will also be a lot cheaper, too.
- As I posted a little while back, our first batch of windows is being manufactured and, once done, will be inspected and installed. My guess is all of building #5 will have new windows by spring.
