Construction Update 1

Construction is well underway, there's some colour on the walls, most the drywall is done in the back and the cable trays are complete.  We're taking a phased approach on the construction; Phase 1 is the rear of the facility which is nearing completion and Phase 2 is the front of the facility which will be completed by the end of the year.

The Media Engineering team will be on site in approximately 1 week to begin building the Central Equipment Room or Nerve Centre of the facility and begin running the cables in the trays and doing interconnects within the CER.  More to follow on that once they begin their work.

As you can see there is more work yet to be done in the newsroom area but this will be done by the end of the year.  Figure 6 is the newsroom hit position, as you can see in the artist's rendition below it will look much better when it's complete.
