[ARCHIVED] Multipurpose Facility Time Lapse February 3 - March 5

With much Multipurpose Facility Time Lapse Video Feb 3 - March 5of the multipurpose facility construction moving indoors recently, we’ve moved our cameras inside as well. 

Check out the latest time lapse video here, spanning from February 3 to March 5, where you’ll see crews meticulously placing thousands of feet of cooling lines that will freeze the floor for ice. Below these lines is a layer of sand, a layer of foam insulation and yet more piping. Those pipes carry warm water from the ice-making system to keep permafrost out of the ground. Once all lines were placed and fused together, crews laid wire mesh. This work was all in preparation for the pouring of the concrete slab (which took place March 6) and was a continuous pour with a tolerance of less than 1/8 inch over the entire 1,700 square feet of surface to ensure the most energy efficient and consistent cooling on the surface.

Look for the slab pouring time lapse later this week, and be sure to check out for details on this project and others that make up the Active Elk River plan.
