Pumper truck set up outside the building.

Crews now finishing the floors this evening.
Meanwhile upstairs, framing is getting finished, electrical and mechanical rough-ins continue, and fire sprinkler systems are beginning to be installed. This shot is of the admin area: offices, a small meeting room and a “bullpen” for students and researchers working in the research facilities.
Outside, civil contractors installing seawater, grey water, potable water and fire lines across the site.
And roofing being prepped to go on. A sneak look at the future colour of the roof.
