Today we PASSED our fire inspection!
Last week crews began framing and laying the rebar for the new parking lot. Yesterday the existing office building was painted to match the two new buildings. Around 3 o'clock this morning, cement trucks showed up and began pouring the concrete. Crews also began constructing the new deck. The theme for this week is progress!
The rain has subsided and crews have been working feverishly to get caught up. Skirting has been installed on the buildings, for the most part. The parking lot and circle drive have been framed and the rebar is being laid. Crews hope to pour concrete next week. Also next week, the plumbing should be installed and work on the deck will begin. Lots of boxes have arrived! We will be calling on you to help assemble furniture in the very near future.
This week has been a muddy mess. The contractors haven't been able to do much. The buildings are all assembled, and the next steps are installing utilities, skirting and building the deck. Big thanks to Austin Allen and Steve Ritchie for laying the walkway back down so we could at least get into the office. Accepting deliveries has presented a few challenges, but we are making it work. Forecast for next week looks much better. Hoping to start work on the parking lot very soon.
On Thursday, January 12th, the new temporary buildings began to arrive! Also on this same day, Comcast installed internet access to our office building, so we no longer have to pay cellular data charges!! In addition, we began the process of giving Humble ISD our 30-day notice. Get ready church! Very soon we will be calling on you to help get these buildings ready for worship!
Water Meter Vault
This week the crew began digging to install the water meter vault. This is prep work for the future permanent facility. The circle drive has been laid out. Our plat was officially recorded with the county yesterday, October 26. Lots of progress this week! There's some rain in the forecast for next week, so hopefully that doesn't cause any delays. They are telling us the entrance to the parking lot should be demolished by next Wednesday. Youth will be held at the home of Ruben and Mandy Juarez beginning next week.
Site Prep Has Begun
On Friday, September 2, 2016, Summer Creek Baptist Church and Maco Construction finally had a chance to sit down and have the pre-construction meeting. On Monday, September 12, a tractor showed up and began bush-hogging the property, which is the first step to preparing the site for the new temporary buildings. Unfortunately the rain and also equipment troubles have delayed any further progress. Hope to post some updated pictures next week!
Harris County APPROVED!
On Friday, August 5th, 2016, the Harris County Engineering Department approved our plans and issued the required permits to begin construction. It's finally time to mobilize the troops!
On Thursday, June 30, 2016, the church received notice from Generation Park Management District that our site plans have been approved. Per our engineer, the plans were submitted to the County on the same day. We are currently awaiting the approval of the County before we can proceed with construction, which generally takes two weeks. Bulldozers are looming on the horizon.....
On Wednesday, April 27, 2016, our church came together on our property for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the recent milestones that were reached. We are currently waiting on a few more pieces to fall into place before we can begin construction.
