Colleyville Public Library Expansion Project - Week 16

This week, exciting visual changes occurred daily on the Colleyville Public Library second floor expansion project. All hands were on deck, as workers of many trades worked relentlessly to finish their tasks for the completion date just a few days away.  On the second floor, millwork installation continued in the kitchenette, the craft room, and the staff work area.  Millwork display shelving was delivered and positioned in place. In the story time room, the puppet stage was built, and by the end of the week, most of the millwork installation was complete. Painters continued to stain millwork, and applied the final coats of paint.  Drywall workers completed sheetrock work.  At the end of the week, ceiling tile was placed in the grid, and flooring installation was started. 

On the first floor, workers completed sheetrock installation in the new stairwell and teen area, and painters completed the process of taping, bedding, and texturing the sheetrock in preparation for painting.  At end of the week, workers began painting the teen area walls. Additionally, on the first floor, workers continued to prepare the area for the installation of the new automated check-in system in the drive-thru return area, which was not completed this week due to a delay in getting an exterior insulation and finishing system (EIFS) color to match the existing color.   A temporary materials return is 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.   When the construction phase is completed, the shelving installation and moving phases will begin and are scheduled to be completed before the end of May.
