Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish
Building our New Church
On Monday and Tuesday, Empfield Construction continued filling and re-compacting the trench where the footings for the west wall of the church will be. They also filled the trenches where the east wall and the front wall of the church will be. These areas will need to be tested for the proper soil compaction as the fill dirt is added. When the areas receive approval from the soil compaction tests, then the footing areas will be filled and re-compacted up to about a foot below the finished floor grade. Then the footings will be excavated. Snell Services installed the conduit for the new electric service and installed temporary electric service to the work site. The Lord chose to give us some more cool, wet weather on Wednesday and part of Thursday. So, the contractors were not able to do any work on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Hopefully Simon Contractors will begin digging the footings this next week.
