NewsFebruary 8: Our office walls are going up!
Ductwork and sprinklers are being installed in the clinic.
December 20: Roofing and walls are shaping up...
In this view, taken from the peak of the existing building's roof and looking northwest, you can see that part of the Clinic's roof will be sloped and part will be 'flat'. Shingles have been delivered and are stored along the peak of the addition's sloped roof. Roof sheathing and waterproofing will continue this week. Down below, windows have been installed; once doors are in, construction heaters will thaw and dry out the interior for inside work.
December 14: Roofing and walls are shaping up...
As the snow continues to build, roof trusses are going into place for both the flat and sloped roof areas. In addition, we can see the wall cladding being installed. Now you can see the dimensions of the expansion without any interior walls in place; it looks like a big addition. In fact it is a 50% increase over the existing area.
Some of the new floor space will be used for medical purposes and some for administrative. The medical uses include: examination, surgical preparation, surgery, recovery, treatment and X-ray.
December 3: Studs and snow are flying...
Site Superintendent Ken Rucks is pleased with work to date. Here you can see perimeter stud walls being tilted up into place. Cold weather and snow can reduce site productivity but so far things are going very well. Once walls are sheathed in plywood we will see roof framing, sheathing and waterproofing.
November 23, 2010: Structural Steel...
Kenmore Construction started erecting steel today at the Spay/Neuter Clinic. Work continues to speed along.
November 17: Floor panels are installed...
Kenmore Construction installed the precast concrete floor sections of the Spay/Neuter addition today. LCHS Executive Director Kevin Strooband is seen here reading the latest Society newsletter from his new "office".
November 15: Construction is underway...
As you can see in the accompanying photographs taken over a 3-week period by Executive Director Kevin Strooband, actual construction of the $2.5M Spay/Neuter Clinic is taking shape nicely under the contract with Kenmore Construction. Site Superintendent Ken Rucks of Kenmore Homes says that, "Common to most projects, there were a couple of minor surprises when excavation began but progress is moving nicely".
November 1: The Rescue Us Campaign...
To date our campaign to build a new Spay/Neuter Clinic has raised $108,375. We have started with the Board and staff before taking the Campaign public. We are now finalizing details related to the production of the campaign materials including: brochure, powerpoint, video clips, standard letters, pledge cards, website, logo-bearing merchandise, photography and donor recognition. Our next step will be to contact people who have identified themselves as campaign volunteers and to begin training and then making campaign calls.
If you are interested in helping out as a volunteer, we have lots of ways for you to contribute meaningfully in the areas of:
* Making calls
* Database management
* Working at events
* Writing news releases
* Preparing campaign call packages
In order to volunteer, please call Jane Lindsay at the Lincoln County Humane Society at 905-682-0767 ext 400.
