This week cladding on the lower floors has begun to be visible. The cladding is pre-cast with brick facing. Prior to the pre-cast cladding being installed, a layer of insulation is placed on the sealed concrete surface of the exterior wall. Installation on the lower floors of the building will be ongoing.
The colder temperatures expected on today will likely result in a shortened workday. Recent milder weather has enabled significant progress to be made on on the 7th and the initial sections of the 8th floor. Work will continue next week, weather permitting, on slab floor, wall and column concrete pouring and finishing.

A small crew will be on-site on Saturday to raise the west crane. We expect this work will be complete by early afternoon.
Hoist (External Construction Elevator)
The cars for the Hoist have arrived on site and have been set into position. The lower section of the tower structure for the hoist is completed. This coming week the tower structure will continue to be raised. It is expected that the hoist will be in operation within the next two weeks or less.
There will be no work on site on the Family Day Holiday, Monday, February 17.
