Work on new facility moves ahead with focus on health requirements

Despite the changes and challenges of the past few months and with an eye toward health and safety, construction has been able to steadily move forward.

Work has included the installation of the building roof, exterior framing work and continued interior work. The work has been able to move forward at a steady space even as construction workers on site follow new health precautions prompted by the presence of the Coronavirus in our state.
