To those interested in the Burrowes building project:

Welcome back.  I hope your holiday was a pleasant and productive one.

Work continued on Burrowes over the holiday.  Chris Hort has summarized progress below, accompanied by photos.

From Chris:  At this halfway point, the project schedule remains on track and the framing and drywall work in the wings is in full swing working from top to bottom. Four mock-up rooms were completed in the North wing, including accent wall colors, to support the set up of office furnishing options by vendors for our review. The shoring and foundation related work occurring in the knuckles will be followed by construction in these areas starting around the end of January.

If you have any project specific questions, please let me know.
Thanks. Chris
