JRC Construction Diary #3

Cold weather construction: it’s no picnic.

Last week’s huge Midwest snowstorm was followed by frigid temperatures that lasted well into this week. Amazingly, amidst it all we only lost three total days of construction. The crew was back out on the site today, continuing to work on the foundation.

The temperature is supposed to warm up this weekend and the first shipment of steel is scheduled for next week. If all goes well the workers will install the rebar, which will provide reinforcement for the foundation. Hopefully it will be warm enough to pour the concrete foundation floor as well. Stay tuned.

Needless to say, I have new-found respect for Chicago construction workers…
