The end of August saw a final topping of smooth concrete poured across the entire church floor. Combined with the foundation walls and steel columns, Redeemer is now ready to begin building “up, and out of the dirt”. The next major milestone will see masons arriving on site to begin erecting the structural block walls (the Redeemer “red bricks” will come later.)
With the lower level foundational work complete, work can also begin downstairs installing the various services (electrical, HVAC ducts, fire sprinkling, etc.) This work will occur all during the month of September, with electrical beginning this week. A critical step is getting the new sanitary lines that exit on the south end of the building attached to the city line that runs under West Maple Road. This will require significant trenching around the circle drive.
Weather permitting, we may even see the start of the foundations that will outline of the new music wing expansion on the west side of the sanctuary.
