The Steel work presses on!

On the morning of Tuesday 29th April 2014, the steelwork that forms the front entrance to the temple was being lifted into place and secured to the foundation. The pictures show one of the uprights being installed. Plenty of progress was ...made today, ahead of the rainy weather expected over the next few days.

The last photo shows a partially completed mock-up section of the temple walls that has been installed near the site office. It will allow the workers and the people from the Temple Department in Salt Lake to see what the finished walls will look like.

The yellow crane that was helping to lift the steelwork left the site at about 2pm on Monday, and now the work is being handled entirely by the larger crane.

Aerial Photos

Here are the latest aerial shots.  Stunning!  Great views of the baptismal font foundation and overall site transformation. 


Construction Update---April 17, 2014

More steel was put in place on Thursday. The frame is looking more and more like the shape of the temple in the artist's renditions. The large crane is temporarily out of action after experiencing a problem on Wednesday afternoon, so a slightly smaller one was brought in to keep things moving along.

Earth-moving equipment has been busy at the back (southern) part of the temple site removing more soil and rock from the berm.

Construction Progress pic, April 2, 2014

With the warmer Spring weather finally upon us, the temple site is abuzz with activity. In this picture, workers are preparing for the baptistry walls to be poured (which was scheduled for later today). The latest news from Elder and Sister Holbrook is that the steelwork should start next week.

Its a Crane!

Here's a photo of the crane fully assembled and ready to be put into action. It's a VERY BIG crane towering over the site and dwarfing all the other construction machinery. It's still hard to fully appreciate the size of the temple....can't wait till it starts to lift the pieces into place!
