The Look Ahead
Progress in Phase 2 is tracking on schedule. As drywall wraps up, finishes will start in the new office areas and training room. Planning and scheduling for Phase 2A is now taking place as we begin to move in that direction. Ryan Geurink, Field Manager 616.821.0519
Phase 2 demolition is complete as well as underground plumbing for the new wash sinks and roof drains. We have begun framing the new partitions, and the new space is taking form as the drywall goes on in various areas. One of the main goals in Phase 2 is to complete the CMM room in time for the CMM Machine delivery, which is expected in early November. Once the new machine is up and running, we will prepare to demolish the old CMM lab and blue room. We refer to this section of the building as phase 2A, and it will be the final phase of construction here at the 3 Mile location. Clayton Martin, Project Manager 616.392.2383
