Forbes Hall Expansion Project Update: CONCRETE TRUCKS ARRIVE WEDNESDAY, OCT 2ND

REMINDER! Concrete Pour is scheduled for Wednesday, October 2nd.  Please be aware that seven concrete trucks, plus the pumper truck, will be traveling to and from Thetis starting at 7:10AM and throughout the day.  The plan is for two trucks plus the pumper truck to be on the 7:10, two trucks on both the 8:40 & the 10:10, with the final truck coming over on the 12:15. 

The Structural Connectors arrived on island on Wednesday, September 25.  Each one weighs over 80 lbs, and will be suspended (so as not to sink) as the concrete sets. When set, precise & final measurements will be taken for the manufacture of the custom glulam beams and fir posts.

Forbes Hall Expansion Project Update:

The Postponed Concrete Pour has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 2nd.  Please be aware that seven concrete trucks, plus the pumper truck, will be traveling to and from Thetis starting at 7:15AM and throughout the day.

Good News!The Structural Connectors, which have created significant hold-ups to the project, are due to arrive on island on Wednesday, September 25.  

Did you know?   

The original request for the kitchen was that it would be at least 1.5 times bigger than the original, to allow for safe access for workers, and some additional work & appliance space. A beverage “closet” had also been asked for, which was given approximately 65 sq ft in early plans.  With reconfigurations needed to keep the project within its maximum square footage, the kitchen lost some of that hoped-for-increase, so it will now stand at 1.4 times larger.  However, we were able to create a larger space for the beverage station, which will accommodate a large part of the kitchen’s duties, as well as food & beverage service.  It is also large enough to use the original kitchen cabinetry, including one of the sinks, the sanitizer, and a fridge.  It has a service window directly into the new Multi-Purpose Room.  

The total food and beverage kitchen/service areas will now be 2.15 times bigger than the original kitchen. 

More space for more volunteers to create food for our island gatherings! 

We want to thank our intern, “Shirlee”, for the fun project updates she provided this summer.
