Starting to Prepare the Ground

This afternoon I took a walk to the construction site of our new building. I had noticed that they were doing some work as I drove by this morning and wanted to see how they were progressing.

See: Zeiss Innovation Center – Construction Begins

I talked to one of the workers and he said that it was a bit too wet from the rains last week to bring in the big equipment. To me, this was a big piece of equipment.

I am sure that they will soon be moving dirt in this area, and I will most likely take another walk tomorrow to see how the earth work is progressing.

It is exciting to see the construction work beginning.
