As usual, there was plenty of activity at the site of our new building this week. And we’re pleased to report that, as of today, the structural skeleton of our building is more than 90% complete!

Concrete for the 3rd floor hasn’t been poured yet—crews will first need to install important wiring needed for our Center for Gait and Motion Analysis, which will move across the street when the new building opens.

In this photo, taken today, you’ll notice the 4th floor, 5th floor, and ceiling deck — all poured concrete supported by steel beams:

And last but not least, here’s a skyway view from the other end. The skyway itself is 165 feet across!
