Steel, steel, and more steel! Click here to view more construction photos.
The steel has arrived! BIG moment for AMP! Click here to view more construction photos.
Pretty exciting to see these shots of our steel in process. Should be arriving to its new home in Winsted by mid-February, and we’re hoping for a thaw so Scope can start installing these beauties!
Work on AMP's Art House continues, thanks to the efforts of our Workers-in-Training. Check out the new vinyl record hallway!
"Like all of our weekly construction meetings, I am always fascinated in listening to the discussion about detail changes these guys are making as this project progresses. All vital moves that are being taken as the building takes form, making adjustments to accommodate PVC pipes whose location impacts placement of beams, existing windows that affect placement of steel, center where there was a structural dividing wall and therefore no existing pier. All worked out but with alot of creative input from Dan Godfrey, our steel guy; John Tracey and Kerry Caparulo from Scope; and our architect, David Shaughnessy." --Ellen
