At 9:00 a.m. on January 14th the Belgravia Community Hall was roofless. By noon, with the help of a crane, all the trusses for the new roof were in place. Finishing the roof and closing in the structure of the renewed hall are big steps forward.
On the inside, the wiring, plumbing, and insulation will be installed. The interior walls will be framed and before the snow melts the drywall will be up.
On the outside, all of us can begin to really see what our neighborhood has achieved. You can imagine where new stairs and a sloping sidewalk will lead to an upper entrance on the north end of the east wall. You can see how the south-facing roof is built at an optimal angle for solar panels. The new windows on the lower level will let in more natural light and the extension to the north creates a big new activity room. The perilous wintertime walk from the old skate change room to the rink will be history.
Take a walk to the park and watch the hall take shape!
