The second fabrication step is underway
First, the fabrication team met to share the vision, assign tasks, and ensure everyone understood the project. Now, the project is with the fabricator for design specifications, and the engineers for location and mechanical specifications. Once their drawings have received official stamps (a professional sign off protocol), the building begins.
There were hiccups and surprises
Delays on a few of the many details were noted in a blog post dated 1 August, 2018. A lot of what Water for Riley is doing hasn’t been done quite this way ever before. The whole team is committed to solving the problems, which W4R greatly appreciates.
Celebrating the drinking fountain installation
The best estimate for the drinking fountain installation is Spring 2019. W4R’s excellent partner and major donor, NWHP REIT, is looking forward to co-hosting the opening celebration.
What the Plan Assist does
Here are first sketches that clarify one part of the fabricator’s scope of work. Heavy Industries is the Prime Contractor and endlessly helpful to the W4R volunteers.
