December Construction Update

For the month of November, we completed a lot of exterior work. There was heavy duty asphalt placed for the chip receiving areas. Blend chamber and dryer tube steel was erected and is now completed. Dryer cyclone steel was delivered and the first levels of that were also put up. Rooftop heating units for the mill were installed and tested, now running full time heating to keep the building warm for concrete placements on the operating floor.

Several small concrete placements were completed on the operating floor, as well as work preparing the large floor opening for its first concrete pours that will happen in December and January. Refiner area trench work was completed and foundation work in that area began. Piping and cabling work continues in side the mill. Chip handling equipment was all placed except for the full truss conveyor that is being placed in the very near future.
