Port’s new building coming along well

  • Aug. 29, 2008 6:00 p.m.

Port Clements’ $4.9-million multi-purpose building is almost at the lock-up stage and should be complete by November, says project manager John Fictorie. The new building, under construction since October, will house the village office, council chambers, the elementary school, and the local library. It will also have space for seniors and a playschool, and a community kitchen. This week, some paving was done (a school bus turnaround and one handicapped parking spot) and Mr. Fictorie said a concrete sidewalk is now being formed and poured. Inside the building, drywall is going up and doors are being installed. Between 12 and 20 people are working on the building every day, many of them locals, Mr. Fictorie said. Most of the finishing tradespeople, however, are coming from off-island.
