James Center for the Performing Arts – Phase II

Week 8 Construction November 21-26

This short Thanksgiving week has been jam packed with easily visible changes at the build site. On Monday, a crane lifted, and carpenters helped guide, 6 panels (2 panels for each of 3 walls) upright into place. Each panel weighs approximately 2,400 lbs – so the 3 new walls of the hall are over 7 tons. The crane is rated to lift up to 15 tons, so raising a 1 ton section of the wall was no strain.

On Tuesday the crane operator starting lifting the trusses for placement atop the walls. Work progressed from the east end of the new building towards the west end of the hall. Now that it is obvious what the size and shape of the addition to the James Center will be, we added a banner to the construction fence so that on-lookers have a better idea about the scope of the project.

A carpenter, working from the bucket of a ‘cherry picker’ located on the north side of the building, is ready to guide the north end of the truss into its proper place.

Week 7 Construction – November 14-19

There did not appear to be much action forward this week, but the carpenters were busy building the panels that would make up the 3 new walls, thus framing in the new hall. The plan was to position the panels on the concrete slab so that next week a crane could easy ‘stand up’ the panels, while the carpenters secure each panel to the existing building and its neighboring panel. Raising the walls and anchoring the skeleton of the building by adding the trusses is planned for 2 consecutive days next week.
