Hope you all had a good weekend, here are some updated photos on the Behchokǫ̀ Community Cultural Center
Here's a word from Paul Gourlay, the Director of Construction for TIC/TCB
"This series of photos will show the framing of the walls nearly complete and the roof framing in progress. In one of the photos, you will see new plywood on a curved wall, this curved wall definitely shows the roundness and curvature of the building, this is a foreshadowing of the beautiful architecture this building will have when it is completed. You will see the many bright shiny silver devices in the photos, these are joist hangers. The structural design is very comprehensive on this project, there are many loads imposed by snow load, floor loads, wind, and seismic loads, the structure is very robust and definitely designed to handle all of these loads, this building will for sure stand the test of time.
Around early June of 2021, we will begin to install the exterior insulation and membranes to begin the process of making the building waterproof and weatherproof.
In June we will begin to build the interior walls, there are many complex angles and radiuses, so it’s definitely time to practice our geometry skills!
We will also be working on concrete floors in the basement area, thus making progress on the roof, the exterior walls, the interior walls, and down below all at the same time.
Stay tuned as this architectural masterpiece develops."
