The new Zeiss Innovation Center in Dublin, California started construction this week. Of course, this depends on what your definition of the start of construction is. To me, this is when you have work crews on site.
It will be some time before the construction will be complete, but I am looking forward to teaching in my new classrooms already.
Last week the lot was full of tall weeds and today it was all nicely mown.
One of the important things that was being completed today was the laying out of erosion control measures. We don’t want valuable dirt to wash away onto the streets 🙂
They were also clearing out some concrete slabs from some old streets that had run through the property.
Another sign that construction was underway was the presence of portable toilets. From now on there should be people working on the site almost every day until the building is completed.
You will most likely be seeing regular posts about the construction process as I will be keeping a close eye on it. The new building is being built only a couple blocks away from our current office so I can take regular walks to check it out and take pictures.
On some days I will take a slightly different route to or from work so I can check on the progress on a regular basis. I don’t want to miss a picture opportunity 🙂
