With the exterior façade of the building progressing, employees and contractors are focusing on the interior as we work through construction phases and hit exciting milestones.

Over the month of May, workers onsite have been busy installing washrooms in the lower levels of the building. Framing and drywalling is continuing on all of the floors, along with T-bar ceiling hangers which will allow for ceiling tile installation to begin.

Rock-breaking and excavation work are also underway for the parkade, located behind the former Saint John Courthouse as well as preparing the area for landscaping over the summer months.

When the building is completed, it will have 9,850 cubic metres of concrete – that’s enough concrete for a continuous sidewalk from uptown Saint John to Sussex, NB!
