Campus Renewal continues to progress with our contractor preparing for construction by setting up the safety perimeter fencing, preparing construction signs, tree protection and coordinating the demolition and construction contractors. They all visited Shephills this week.
We are still waiting for the construction permit to be issued by the City of West Lake Hills. The permit is currently being reviewed by the building inspector service firm the city uses so as soon as that is released, we should have a permit. Pending the permit, we should start to see the rear drive, stairs and outside wall area of the gym get prepared and subsequently demolished. The following week, we expect the walls to be cut for the glazing and interior preparations to begin for internal work.
We await the front landscape design changes from the landscape architects incorporating the changes that the city approved in the January 24, 2018 meeting. Our building task force will review this with our architect – Heimsath Architects along with the general contractor to prepare a front landscape permit application (yes we need to get a permit again).
Shephills is also getting prepared by shifting our events from the activity center (gym) to the fellowship hall and gathering area (narthex). We will begin serving the “Food for Fellowship” breakfast this Sunday, February 18, 2018 in the fellowship hall (preschool building). Coffee will be available in the gathering area and the Fellowship hall as well on Sunday.
