Colleyville Public Library Expansion Project -Week 15

This week a variety of activities pushed the Colleyville Public Library second floor expansion project around the bend into full view of the finish line. This brought a heighted level of energy to the Library, as workers of all trades started driving full force to the project end line. On the second floor, the most exciting visual change was the start of the millwork installation, which brought touches of a finished look to the area. In the story time room, bench seating was installed, and in the kitchenette, cabinets were attached to walls. In the craft and staff work rooms, window and door frames were installed, and doors were fit to the frames. Also, painters began the process of staining the millwork. Drywall workers focused on patching and repairing sheetrock above the ceiling in preparation for above ceiling inspections. Additionally, appliances for the kitchenette were delivered, and workers continued to install audiovisual conduit in the walls.

On the first floor, workers focused on completing sheetrock installation in the new stairwell and teen area. By the end of the week, their work was completed, and painters moved in and began the process of tape and bedding the sheetrock in preparation for painting. Additionally, on the first floor, workers began to prepare the area for the installation of the new automated check-in system in the drive-thru return area. The work included removing two existing material returns, and cutting a larger hole in the exterior wall to make room for the new automated return system. Additionally, a temporary material return was put in place to accommodate drive-thru traffic until the new system has been installed, which is currently scheduled for next week. Currently, work on the project is on target and is scheduled for completion the end of April 2011.
