To continue our report from 10/5/07, the construction crew pours the last four steps of the new stairway. These stairs lead from the Visitors parking lot to the Visitors Center in Crafts III.
Construction interns Cameron Wilson, Elisabetta Quaglino and Daniela Cardace shovel and distribute concrete into the step forms. Construction intern William Holman brings more concrete in a wheelbarrow.
Chief and teacher of this construction team, David Tollas, and Landscaping coordinator Ron Chandler, put the finishing touch to the completed concrete pour.
As the concrete dried and set, the crew scrubbed the surface of the steps with a stiff wirebrush to expose the coarser grain of sand and gravel in the mix.
This report continues on 10/17/07.
