We reported on 12/12, 12/17, 12/19, 12/21 and 12/26/2007 about the first stage of work, installation of new concrete walk-ways and an upgrade of the visitors parking-lot.
[from left] During the first phase about half of the concrete walk-way on the east side of the parking lot was poured and finished by local contractor Lane Malouff and his crew.


? Now, in several stages, the Arcosanti construction crew with workshop participants and volunteers, is pouring concrete and finishing the rest of this walk-way. [from left] Workshop participants Yong Su Park and Gregg Elliott open bags of concrete.
Construction crew William Holman and workshop participant Daniel Copperman add the concrete into the batch plant.
This batchplant and the old concrete truck have been in use since the mid 1970’s. And they are still operational, thanks mostly to the loving care of construction chief Dave Tollas.
Team members for this pour are [from left] Workshop participant Yong Su Park, Landscaping coordinator Ron Chandler, Dave Tollas, construction crew Nick Bortel and William Holman, workshopper Daniel Copperman and construction intern Anuj Dayal.


? Ron Chandler, William Holman and Anuj Dayal screed the surface of the walk-way.
A report on the next pour on this walk-way will be posted on 6/11/08.
Reports on the installation of solar panels, and lighting along the visitors path, also part of the effort made possible by this grant, were posted from 2/18 through 3/19/08.
