The gas company started installing the natural gas line to the building. Von’s worked on the sewer collection pit. Crafts people made progress with electric, plumbing, drywall, etc.

Sewer Manhole July 22-27
[Picture: vacuum tester on a sanitary sewer manhole. Von’s crew conducted the test under Ray's watchful eye. It passed, meaning no storm water will leak into the sanitary sewer from the manhole.]
Installation of the fire suppression sprinkler system was started. Hamstra's steel crew worked on exterior soffit and trim. Von's started on the 16" water main out by US 52. The supply side, natural gas line was installed by Vectren to the building. Additional drywall, insulation, electrical, and HVAC ductwork progressed this week.
