Cranes, Turbines, Containers, Oh my!

It is officially 3 days before the Poetry Blox Opening and we have tons of work to do! Between drywalling and installing floors, we have a lot on our plates. However, we have formed a group of eager students and helpers who are willing to put in the time and effort to get this project completed by Thursday!

In other news, the shipping container is finally here!

On Friday, November 19th, the shipping container arrived, filling the void beside the turbine.

The crane provided by the Moir Crane Service Itd. came and lifted the shipping container from the Lebel parking lot to the front lawn.

Up, up and away!

Ray from Lorenzen Engineering came by to watch the crate’s arrival.

The Lebel building front lawn was filled with curious and excited eyes from pedestrians who were walking by. Some even stopped by to ask Ray and students about what was happening.

The interior of the shipping container came from Toronto filled with the insulation that has been provided by Roxul Insulation. We are excited to start installing it as soon as tomorrow if all electrical aspects go according to plan.

Things are unfolding fast here with the Production Team! We hope to have everything up and running by Thursday night! See you all at the Poetry Blox Opening!

Crunch Time!

Today the Production Team finally got in contact with ABC Fire Doors. After a long dry spell of little hope, it was just one more phone call that did the trick. Michael Stajan from ABC was very excited about our project. Things are looking very good.

We’re shooting for a fancy steel door with: entrance metal door opener and passage set, NRP hinges, dead bolt with keys, auto closure, leather strip, threshold plate, and a door sweep!

In talking with the Fundraising team about helping hands: we’ve gathered a list of people that know how to cut and install drywall for the occasion. Other lists include the tools list, and hardware list; which includes everything from self-tapping drywall screws to drywall tape.
We are also debating the type of bolts we should use with the LED sign, and additional anchoring/support/etc.

Ted Keener from Lorenzen has been in contact with Randy Moir and his crane services! Therefor, it looks like we have a crane to lift the shipping container into place on the cement pads. HUZZAH!

Roxul Insulation has sent us a vector to work with! PROMOTIONNSSSANDPLUGZ!

I’m (kevin) doing ok. Yesterday I was released from the hospital and have about 5 more days of recovery at home until I get some metal removed from my insides. Thanks everyone for signing the card. And Justin, thanks for making it! It made my day!!!

Poetry Blox on the move!

Today we talked to Ron Allan from Metro Skylite (an eco friendly company) on the telephone. He’s very enthusiastic about the project: he’s on board with us, currently trying to get us a better alternative to a Velux VSE S06, from Poland for the price of FREE. He’s getting back to us tuesday! feel the excitement!

We are also calling Roxul Insulation, and waiting on a call back from ABC Fire Doors today.

Last night in class Hiba made calenders for every group to plug in their dates for events in our semester!
We should all colour code the groups and make a legend so everyone knows what everyone else is doing. no confusion!

Noel and Lorenzen Engineering are talking to the University: soon enough the cement foundations are going in, which will take 7 days to cure, and then we will be receiving the crate! expect this to finally begin within the next two weeks me thinks!!!!
