Workers from Peninsula Concrete and Steel of Gloucester dug and poured the footings for the event pavilions at the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park on January 23. Mid-20s weather did not deter work this past week as progress continues in getting the building ready for the park’s events season in April.
After beginning the digging on January 22, the reinforcing bar and infrastructure conduit were installed and the footings poured the following day.
Weather permitting, the concrete forms and in-slab plumbing and electrical conduit were installed this week. The 5-inch was poured immediately after.
All those interested in helping in any way, or are interested in receiving plan sets for the museum building when they are ready, please call David Moran at the museum office (776-7200). David and the Museum office are acting as the central clearing house for volunteers, donations and all inquiries for the building projects. There will always be the need for an extra set of hands once the Pavilion begins to go up.
