Construction Update – June 2018
The rain this past 2 weeks has been challenging at times. It’s nice to have a sunny day to enable the construction crew to make some progress.
No complaints though from Nielsen Construction Corp or their subs. We have a meeting next week with architect, engineering team and contractors to go over the schedule and upcoming events. Cabinet samples are in for the Grove residents and are being reviewed by Marketing. Partners Excavating Co. has been working on the new high-pressure water line that will help us with fire suppression as well as domestic water issues we have had in the past. Our progress is going well.

One of our residents commented today that our construction site reminds her of little boys playing with their toy trucks and diggers. It’s not hard to appreciate that remark when little boys are coming by to see our construction project with their dads and granddads. One set makes regular trips each week to see the “big diggers.”
