Just a short up-date on the progress of the new sandblasting and paint facility at the farm. The building has been a long time coming; however, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

There has been some significant changes in the last three months. The final leveling of the main floor and all in floor heating pipe and concrete floors are complete. The separation fire walls between the main building and the lean-tos have been installed as well as the partition walls in the north lean - to for the mechanical, electrical and storage rooms. The partition wall in the south lean - to has been framed up, with the small parts paint area and paint mixing kitchen complete. Framing and drywall as well plumbing and electrical rough in for the office, lunchroom and bathroom is now complete. The taping of the drywall, painting and installation of the drop ceiling will soon be finished. Installation of the inside lining of the building is progressing. Final structural design of the end and main doors will be approved for fabrication and installation by the end of September. Mechanical design of all air movements and curing equipment is in the approval stages and equipment is on order. The crane for inside of building and extension of the 60 foot extension outside of the building is on order for delivery and installation early November.

Most of the electrical cable has been pulled into the building and equipment moved into main electrical room. The power will be turned on in the building the week of September 27. Interior and exterior lighting is being installed. All of the electrical switch gear and PLC to control the equipment has been delivered to Brandon and is presently being set up and programmed. We are targeting having the office, bathroom and lunchroom ready to move into by mid October. Our goal is to have the building closed in by late October. Equipment delivery is scheduled for early November, installation to start upon its arrival and will be in place to start commissioning in December.
