Colleyville Public Library Expansion Project - Week 5
A considerable amount of work was completed this week on the Colleyville Public Library second floor expansion project despite library closures due to inclement weather on Tuesday and Friday. On the first floor in the meeting room, minor heating ventilation and air conditioning, and plumbing demolition work continued. On the second floor, layout work for the walls was completed and the wall installation framing phase continued. Metal studs now define all new areas including the meeting, story time and craft rooms, meeting and story time room storage areas, the staff workroom, and the kitchenette. Installation of wall electrical boxes and conduit was almost completed. In the kitchenette, an area was prepared for plumbing installation. Also, sheetrock was delivered and positioned for installation. Outside in the fenced construction area, the support I-beam for the second floor meeting room moveable wall was delivered and preparations were made for lifting it up to the second level. Currently, work on the project is on target and is scheduled for completion the end of April 2011.
