This summer, crews have been hard at work preparing the McGrath site for the new McGrath/BECC building. While it may not have looked very exciting so far, things are about to get a lot more interesting!
From the outside, you’ve mostly seen what just looks like dirt being moved around. But if you take a closer look, you’ll see a lot of things happening underground.
About 1800 linear feet of pipes were installed. This new drainage system will allow the McGrath campus to hold a great deal of stormwater and runoff before slowly releasing the water into the MSD system. This will help prevent water runoff from causing any strain on the community and will help the entire neighborhood in the event of heavy rains!
With this preliminary work done, you can expect to see more progress – with signs of a building starting to come out of the ground – in the coming weeks and months. So far, construction teams have kept on schedule for this build and we are so excited to see more progress soon!
