  8. Final inspection completed by Brookfield was passed.

 Tasks yet to complete over the next two weeks include:

  1. Permanent railing on new ramp in lower level will be installed in the next few weeks.
  2. Final “Punch List” was created during a final walk-through with Plunkett Raysich Architects, Berghammer Construction, and representatives from UUCW. *A “Punch List” is a construction term meaning to-do list.
  3. More cleaning and touch-ups will be completed around the building.

Artwork, signs, and name tags, oh my!

An Art Task Force was created by the UUCW Exec Team. Task Force members include Greer Jordan, Kelly Bognar, Stephanie Richardson, Eddee Daniel, Janet Sandretti, Dave Cicero, and Suzelle Lynch. The team will be working on artwork, signage, and placement of things like name tags, furniture, and other displays. Watch for updates!
