Pardon me if this has been discussed but....

There is a crew pouring cement right now, they all are wearing fluorescent green shirts.

I noticed a non-cement pourer walking around wearing a fluorescent orange shirt.

Different jobs = Different colored shirts????

Aircraft carrier deck crews do that, I think.
Concrete
Us Beverley Hillbillies fans call it cement. SEE-ment. As in, ‘cement pond’ as they called their swimming pool.
You can call it whatever you want. But if you buy a ton of cement you’ll get an entirely different substance.

I mean, you can call a pass a rush...but...

Had to look it up but Google says it is a food additive.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

Silicon Dioxide is used in the construction industry to produce concrete.

Thank God!

I have been on pins and needles for weeks wondering when they were going to get to the goddamned silicon dioxide. \:D/

It's a little known fact that silicon dioxide has many uses, including in food, fragrances, electronics, and various construction materials.

They are taking down the window frames they put up over a month ago.

What's going on? It looks like the brawl of the wild trophy is sitting on the 10 yard line of the football field.

I wondered if that might be it, thanks.

Of course, the sky opens up when they arrive to take photos.

Looks like they moved Sonny. I wish we had a camera on the Kagy side of the building.

They moved it to the side of the stadium. I'm sure it will go back as soon as they get the site work done.

I was up in Bozeman today and took a few photos. They have a few more windows installed and you can see the curbing taking shape.

Upper transom-like windows are in but hard to see in the photo.

Some of the pictures make it big. Some make it look massive. Can hardly wait until it is completed...

I get to go for a tour of BAC at the end of the month. My company is providing all the lighting controls.

After what seems like months of very little visible progress from the perspective of the webcam, they're finally putting in windows and doing some exterior finishes to the stadium side of the building. I saw a picture this morning on Martel Construction's instagram page of the building from the north side and I was impressed with how much more completed it looks than the side we're used to seeing. I have my doubts about whether they can finish by the time practices start, but hopefully at least by the first home game. That's just under 3 months from now....12 weeks and 3 days. I'm confident in Martel, not super confident in supply chains.
