Only a Few Weeks of Construction Remaining at BioLinc!

As we enter into the final weeks of construction at BioLinc, it is fascinating to look back at photos of BioLinc at the beginning of February and see all the progress that has been made. Over the past few weeks, the construction crew has started painting and putting in the flooring. Over the next few weeks painting will continue, shelving and millwork will be installed and the sheet vinyl flooring will be started in the lab area. Check out the photos below to see how the construction of BioLinc is coming along!

BioLinc Construction Begins!

The Beginning: BioLinc February 1, 2013

With the first week of construction at BioLinc well underway we have had some great progress! Construction on the 4,000 square foot incubator facility started at the end of February with the steel stud tracks being installed. During the next 2 weeks of construction the steel stud tracks will be completed and this will facilitate site measuring and layout. Work is also being done with HVAC and plumbing rough-ins. With the steel stud tracks in place you can really get a picture of what BioLinc is going to look like.
