Construction Progress

So much progress has been made since our last update! All of the floors are up and the roof is almost completed. On the exterior, the yellow waterproof skin is on and a layer of brick has been added. Inside the building, electrical, plumbing and HVAC infrastructure is progressing from the lower floors upwards. Once the building is sealed, drywall and flooring can begin. Construction is on track to be completed in late summer 2023. We look forward to opening the doors to poultry science students, faculty and staff for the first time!

Construction Progress

Construction progress is, for the most part on track, despite high competition for concrete in the area this summer.

Underground mechanical, electrical and plumbing is wrapping up on the south side of the building. The foundation slab was recently poured on the north half of the building and the south side slab will soon be poured.

The plan for the rest of 2022 is to add one floor per month, with the goal to reach the top floor by Thanksgiving and the roof by the end of the year.
