Construction crew all smiles after bolting down the first steel column on the new Northern Cancer Centre
Prince George, B.C.- The construction of the Northern Cancer Centre entered a new phase today with the placement of the first steel column on the second floor.
“This means we are finished the concrete construction phase, and will be entering the structural steel stage” says project manager Chris Rasmussen.
The first steel column was lifted into place by the huge crane on the construction site, and a crew bolted it into place. That column is the first of many that will support the roof of the new Northern Cancer Centre. “From here we will really see the building start to take shape” says Rasmussen.
Five months into the construction of the facility that is expected to be complete in late September of 2012, today’s event marked another milestone in this project “This is really huge in the construction business” says Rasmussen.
The crane lifted the column to the roof of the parkade, where Rasmussen and Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad posed for photos, then swung the column over to the second floor of the Cancer Centre where it was bolted into place.
The Northern Cancer centre will have two floors, a basement parkade, and two rooms where radiation treatment can be delivered.
