In early June, the WSC graduate student housing project transitioned from the foundation stage to the framing stage of the process. At the same time that cement trucks were pouring the footings and slabs on the remaining few buildings, crews began framing the buildings with finished slabs. This is an exciting stage of the process as the ground work is being finished and it is finally time to “go vertical.” Framers are building walls and roofs on the firm foundations. During the framing stage, landscapers will begin installation of the many plants and trees that will fill out the 9.5-acre site. This will allow the vegetation and trees to take root and mature in time for students to move into the housing units in the summer of 2018.
