Manufactured in Oregon, and having arrived in many pieces, the building is already being prepped for erection by our crews on site. Over the next few weeks, we will be erecting over twelve truckloads of steel materials which were delivered to the site today.

As is tradition with this erecting crew, with the placement of the first beam representing the top of the building, also is the placement of the American Flag. This flag has special meaning for this team, as this was one of the team members Grandfather’s flag, who was also a steel erector. This flag now flies with the 3rd generation of this steel erecting family.
