Amazing Work Being Done

Everything is going well with the project.  Amazingly well.  The new HVAC duct work installation is being completed at Ivy and Spacesaver is scheduled to be here on Monday, February 14, 2011 bringing the rails to install.  I am sure our friends from Wisconsin are fully recovered from the Green Bay Packers victory in the Super Bowl.  The installation of the rails will take a couple of weeks then we pour concrete--lots and lots of it.  We will definitely be adding photos and (hopefully) video of that operation.  Renee and I will be at Ivy when the rails come in so stay tuned.

In the meantime the guys continue to pre-process our materials as much as they can and are making good progress.  Truth be told, I don't want that part of the operation to move too quickly because I have no place to store the boxes of items that have been bar coded and sorted by size.  We are getting the hang of sorting by size and that is important.  Once we have trays and a place to put them we will be able to really roll.  I also recently visited the 1040 pallets of stuff we are storing in Orange and all is well there.

And we should have trays soon.  We have placed the order with Supply One, Inc.  They have a manufacturing plant in Weyers Cave, VA, just over the mountain from Charlottesville.  They have supplied containers to UVa and many others in Virginia for years and I am confident they will do a good job supplying us with what we need.  I know Virginia Tech has used them for trays at their off site facility and are satisfied.  We're just riding their coat tails.  I'm glad we can use a local company for this contract.

Look for new photos next week.  This should be exciting.
