Crews are framing three elevations of the building and working on closing things in. First- and second-floor slabs have been poured, and the structural steel contractor is working on the pan deck (support) for the roofing. Concrete workers will pour slabs on the roof for the mechanical units.

Adroit Construction is working on getting the front structural steel canopy erected late next week.
