The whole structure is not yet painted and it's spots where it has been welded.

Getting really close to skylight installation. Safety netting is already in place for about half the length of the oculus.

I was there this morning (March 16th) and took some photos. Exciting to see it come together!

These images are bigger if you click on them.

Oh, no. Glass instalation at skylight is at least 2 months away. They need to first install purge fans at transition segments, then move on steel survey at skylight chambers, install machinery and then on skylight modules.

They are already wiring the electrical components of machinery on B1 (EL.296') on northeast corner.

It's not kerrigan.synology. It's Earthcam. Even the app is no longer displaying the images. I hope it's not the end of the Earthcam cameras.

Hmmm, I figured they would've finished painting the structure before window installation began.

I'm guessing there will be protective film covering most of the glass, so there would be no worries. These first ones might be for demonstration purposes. That's just a guess, Otie or someone else can clarify.

No, they are quite permanent. 2 white coatings are yet to be applied to the whole structure, including rafters. There's a gap between glass and actual portal frame surfaces, this gap is closed later on with a strip-type component.
