Vaccine Research Center Reaches Halfway Mark
The new Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center is now about 50 percent complete, says its construction manager. The steel erection in the penthouse was to be finished by the end of August. The pre-cast concrete exterior for the building is due for completion by mid-September and the curtain wall (window glazing) will also be done by mid-September, said Nancy Decker of Spaulding & Slye. "The whole building will be weather-tight by the end of September 1999. We are right on schedule for completion of the project in May 2000," she said.
