Corner windows, building entrance and porch wall

New developments as of last Friday at the site of your Hospice Peterborough:

Photo #1 shows the framing for large picture windows for a program room (like our current living room but larger square footage). Photo #2 shows two large picture windows for the large education room (slightly left of photo center) and the Family Great Room (top right of photo). [showhide type=”post”]

Photo #3 below is taken from where the front entrance will be. You can see the stairwell to the lower level (about mid-photo, slightly right) and to the left of the stairwell a hallway that will lead into the residence and eventually to the large picture window inside the Family Great Room. A direct pathway of people flow and light.

Photo #4 shows the construction of a new high wall that was not there in the April 17 blog post taken from the same camera angle. This wall becomes the east wall for the porch (which we now cannot see) and the west wall for the Family Great Room, Private Family Lounge and Therapeutic Spa Room. See if you can spot the change in the two different posts!

Ceiling beams and floor boards

Work continues at the construction site this afternoon with large ceiling beams being lifted into place for the Heeney House Community Hospice Programs area of the new building (see April 17 photo immediately below). New floor boards were also installed on the Hospice Residence area last week (the image from June 14 – 2nd photo below – shows this well). [showhide type=”post”]

Staying with the April 14 photo…
Where the new floorboards are: This will be the location of the Family Great Room/Dining Room (furthest south), Private Family Lounge (next room north) then the Therapeutic Spa Room. More in the foreground, you can see six of the ten private bedrooms framed in (large windows). The remaining four bedrooms will be built where the piles of gravel are within the concrete foundation – with all ten bedrooms forming a kind of “L” shape part of the building. Exciting for Peterborough!

Heeney House main level takes shape

I am amazed at the pace of construction this week. Walking home last night, I saw main level walls and windows beginning to take shape. As someone who has walked by the site almost daily for over a year, the developments over the past 24hrs are really exciting for Peterborough! Like they say, a picture tells a thousand words…[showhide type=”post”]

Heeney House lower level ceiling/main level floorboards

Workers are moving fast at the site these past few days. For the Heeney House community programming area, the ceiling for the lower level/floorboards for the main level are now being installed. On the residence side, workers are busy building a second concrete wall – hard to see because they are working under large orange tarps to keep cement warm as it dries. See photos below – one via our new Nexicom-sponsored site cam (the old cam was struck by lightening!): [showhide type=”post”]

Main level taking shape

The first photo below is taken from where the front entrance to the new Care Centre will be (from London Street looking south). The wooden framing to the right is the lower level admin offices and programming rooms. Straight ahead the first rectangular concrete shape is the main stairwell (about middle of photo).[showhide type=”post”] The slightly smaller rectangular shape beyond that is the elevator shaft. The concrete wall being built to the left (east) is starting to show the height of the main level. It will be a completely interior wall. The doorway in the concrete wall is the door to the dirty utility room in the residence (e.g. holding area for dirty laundry and cleaning equipment). If you were to walk through the doorway as shown, you would be walking out of the utility room and into the main residence hallway that leads to six of the ten private bedrooms. Great to see workers taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather!

Foundation in-filling

After a holiday season and January that saw record cold temperatures, the recent warmer weather has allowed work to continue. Today the sun managed to peak through the clouds after many days of rain and fog.

The following two photos can be compared to the previous blog post. Notice how much of the foundation has been in-filled with gravel. Also, workers have laid concrete cinder blocks atop some of the formed concrete foundation. [showhide type=”post”]
