Major segmental walls and tiered gabion basket walls are complete on the site. There are two small segmental walls remaining on the Jett Lanier Drive that ties to the Spine Road which should be getting started in the next couple of weeks.

The soil nail wall is nearing completion. The section of the soil nail wall tying to the gabion basket wall has the upper 5 feet prepped and ready for the shot-crete application.

Lots is happening in the parking area. Concrete sidewalks are being formed and poured. The irrigation system is being installed in islands to prep  for landscaping. Curb and gutter has been completed.

Inside, the vinyl composite tile (VCT) flooring and the carpet have been installed on the sales floor and the office. Both are perfect for high traffic areas.
