Here's a pic from a couple of days ago...after the last bit of perimeter wall footing had been poured. Most of the structural concrete work is complete!

Blue Skies over the Temple's basement!

All the basement walls have now been poured, as well as the foundation walls for the baptismal font.   Elder Holbrook says that additional footings have also been poured on the east side of the building this week.  The waterproofing membrane has been installed on the mat footing and sections of the basement foundation walls.   Moving right along!

Latest Aerial photos!

Here are some great views of the newly poured basement foundation (that's where the baptistry will be) and the access road behind the temple. Two basement walls were poured last Friday! 

That concrete floor you see is 42 inches deep! Zoom in and check out the cool work going on in the basement. (For orientation: Farmington Ave. runs along left side of this photo.)

That's Farmington Ave. along the top of this pic. They're making great progress on the access road behind the temple---it runs along the bottom here.

Progress Pics, March 7,2014

Despite the snow and unseasonably cold weather, work continues on the temple site. The access road that will run from Melrose Drive behind the temple is beginning to take shape, and with much of the recent snow cleared from the ground around the temple footings and foundation, there is plenty going on. Chatting briefly with one of the workmen from the earthmoving contractor when these photos were taken, he was in good spirits in spite of the cold. Keep the treats for the workers coming - it's a nice "thank you" for all the days they're spending in the frigid outdoors to keep the construction work on our temple moving along!
The beginnings of what will become the access road that will run behind the temple from Melrose Drive.
