Christmas Eve Work

Pics from Prof. Ron Roehl who reports:

This is Christmas Eve morning and we have electricians, carpenters and roofers working at least to noon.

There are 2 pics of the roofers who have finished the cap on the southern end of the building. Also working to finished the connecting area roof with its cap.

Inside the electricians are working on the flexible conduit for the horizontal runs and rigid conduit for the vertical runs. Most boxes are in and waiting for conduit connections and the pulling of the wires.

The mechanical room (4 pics) is getting the finished wooden panel wall. It seemed like 3/4 inch plywood finished on one side. It gets only paint on these panels.

The other pics show the tubes where the geothermal tubing come in and also the connector for the geothermal lines to the various zones in the building. You can see that each of them has its own shutoff so control of the various zones will be quite easy.

I do not know when the workers will be back after Christmas.

Blessing to each of you as we are again amazed and comforted by the Christmas story.

Video: Shingling Started


Electrical Has Begun

Pics from Prof. Ron Roehl who reports:

Not much different from yesterday.

You can see the lid versus the plastic on the one photo. The sheetrock is for the lid in that room.

Flex conduit seems pretty standard because of the long runs.

Cutting and putting in stud spacers.

Roofers were at it in the afternoon.

Windows and Insulation

Pics from Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Back side of this roof is done and they are at work on the front of the connecting area between the sets of two classrooms.

The windows are mostly all in on the phase one section.

The inside is being heated with the burner you see. You have a pic from the inside and from the outside.

The inside outside walls are all batted and ready for the wall covering. The ceiling has the vapor barrier up and ready for the lid of sheetrock.

Looking better every day.


Windows Installed

Photos courtesy of Cheryl Meyer who writes:

Just thought I would add a few roofing pix, and today they are putting in windows! It is looking great. Too bad for so much snow, but they seems to be dealing with it fine.

IF you are headed to the concert tonight, please drive safely! Merry Christmas! Cheryl

Roofing Update - 12/18/2008

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

South slope all shingled to cap.

East connecting roof partially done.

Most of the rest is tarped expecting snow tonight and tomorrow.

Some insulation being unloaded.

Roofing in Full Swing

Pics courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who reports:

Roofers are here and going full blast. The South slope is papered and should be pretty well all shingled by tomorrow depending on the weather. There is some paper on the back side but it looks like they will paper as they go contrary to one of the earlier reports.

The inside pictures are dark but you can see that the plastic vapor barrier is going up in preparation for the sheetrock lid. Some insulation has arrived and the men are putting some in the wall areas.

It is still very slippery inside with the real smooth concrete floor and the snow still not melted on that smooth floor. It helped that a group of students got in there last Saturday and got a lot of the snow down off the rafters so that will not bother the workers.

The concert is soon upon us and the students will be gone. Remember the concert is at Messiah Church (Friday at 7:30 pm).

Roofing Begins

Roofers Coming

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Roofers will be in early next week, probably Monday. They will paper all of it and then begin shingling.

The carpenters have just a few sheets to nail down and they will have the entire roof ready for the roofers.

Windows will start to go in next week. There will be temporary doors to fill the openings so they can get heat in and melt all the snow on the rafters so it won't drip on the workers continually. Of course it will be warmer working also.

Pictures will be harder to get from now on because most of the work is on the inside for a time and I will want to stay out of the way. Maybe evenings I can go in and catch up on the days work. If I don my hardhat maybe they will let me in.

Geothermal Wells & Back of Building

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

The pile of dirt represents one of five trenches needed to tie together the geothermal well system. They dig and fill on the same day so there is no freezing problem. This will done by the weekend and tied into the building so the heating men can take it from there any time they are ready.

The other pics show the back of the building at this time. One pic is of the front dormer between the two main sections.

Roofers will be in this weekend and paper the whole roof so that it will all be covered. Doors and windows will come next. Heat generated outside by propane will be sent in to radiators in the building to give a dry heat. There will also be a sheetrock lid on the inside. Below that lid will be the suspended ceiling.

Things are moving. It is fun to watch.


Monday, December 8, 2008

Roof and Wells

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Working hard to get the building under roof to keep the snow out.

Windows and doors will start to be in soon. They are on site.

A large trench was dug today at the back end of the geothermal field. The various well circulation pipes will be tied together in this trench and then go to the building. At least that is my understanding. The well field is sill covered with tarps over hoses with warm water to that it out down two feet. They will then tie the wells together.

Update from Building Committee

There was a progress meeting with Market and Johnson this past Friday (Dec. 5) regarding the building. Here are some notes:
  • Completion date for Phase 1 is February 13, 2009
  • Phase 1 to be sheeted (roof and walls) by December 12
  • Shingle crew to complete work the week of Dec. 15
  • All 50 geothermal system wells have been dug
  • Building dried-in and temp-heated prior to Christmas
  • Trim changed to oak in many areas of Phase 2 due to donation of materials from CLC member in Markesan area
  • Stained glass representations of Luther’s Seal and ILC Logo for gable ends of west elevation are being constructed off-site. Cost of materials only not to exceed $5K. M&J will construct gable framing and lighting at no additional cost.
  • Tentative completion date for Phase 2 is May 1

Rafter Update - 12/03/2008

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

The outside shots are of the work done today which you probably saw on the cam. Lots of rafters going up.

I will get pics tomorrow of the well field. They are about to tie together all of the wells. To do this they will have to thaw out the ground to trench it and put in the connectors. They have put many hundreds of feet of hose over the field and are running water through it to thaw the ground. There is a huge black tarp over the whole area to keep the heat in. It may takes many days to thaw the ground down two feet. I did get some of this on the video camera. I am not sure if Ross will get that on tonight yet.


Monday, December 1, 2008

Rafter Update - Dec. 1, 2008

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Looks like rafters all this week. They worked on the top of the center section today. They still have the peak to put on there and then all the rafters over the south classrooms. There should be quite a change this week.

The drillers were at it again today. I am not sure what number they are on or how many they need. They must be near completion of the drilling.

Stabilizing the rafters is needed and you can see some of the carpenters nailing up the 4X8 roof sheets to tie things together.

Perspective Views

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

No drilling today. They may have finished until the tests are in.

More concrete poured in front and a small side section by the lab rooms.

The building is solidified with the addition of roof sheeting and some wall sheeting.

I have tried to give perspective pictures from different angles. Some were taken from upstairs in Ingram Hall.


Thursday, November 20, 2008

First Sidewalk Poured

Pictures courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Pouring the front walkway today. They can pour if the temperature is around 10 degrees or above.

The carpenters are solidifying everything they have up before they go any higher. That means that they will be working on the South end to get the walls in and the rafters on that end before they do too much more on this the Reim Hall end.

Drillers are at it today. I do not know how many are left to do.


Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Rafter Update - Nov. 19, 2008

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Two rigs going today again. They have about 12 wells to go until all the tests are in to see if they need more wells because they are not as deep as they first anticipated. They are hitting granite at about 145 feet and will not try to drill that. They would rather do extra wells than try to go deeper. They can probably drill the first 140 feet in an hour and a half and then several hours to get a few feet into the granite.

Xcel is here putting in gas line as you can see. They went from the road across the south side of the building up along the east side to the corner you see them digging in.

Rafter work proceeds as you can see from the cam shots. ... As I write they have about 2 to go toward Reim Hall. Looking good.

Cement job went well yesterday and they had to work late to get it done. Xcel put in some large lamps for that pour. I don't know if that was for just light or heat also.

More Slab

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

They had about 17 wells done at noon today. Slow start because all was pretty well frozen up this morn.

They are going to _/*try*/_ for the slab tomorrow even though it will be cold. The walkways will come later according to a workman.

The cam gives a good look at the rafters, but I sent a few shots the cam can't quite get. As you can see they are past the hallway and are still working as I write this at 4:30.

Unable to pour today. They are ready for tomorrow but it doesn't look good. Hoping for Monday.

The pile of walls inside are for the south slab as soon as it poured.

Two drillers going today. Slurry is captured as you see and there is a fire hose running down the hill past the gym and over the hill to take away some of the slurry.

Walls - Nov. 12, 2008

Photos courtesy of retired Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Drilling going on today. They are trapping the slurry for now. I guess they plan to separate it somewhat and then pump on down to the holding tanks. From there we do not know.

The black piles are the tubes that go down into the geothermal wells. The bags are the mix that the wells are filled with after the tubes are inserted.

The other pics are just general from the East side of the building site. Also a couple of the prep for the front entrance.

Can't tell you much but Dave said they hoped to pour today but now the hope is for tomorrow. Meanwhile the sticks are going up with some sheeting (or is it sheathing) and the block work on the East Side progresses. If you looked real closely to the back right of the cam view, you can see that they are drilling wells today also. "Progress" is our most important product. I think GE said that first but I like it.

You can see some of this from the cams but I thought the views from the other side might be interesting.

The stick walls are on schedule and should be completed by the end of the week.

The block walls for the music room are progressing nicely. I think this is a shelter room also. Notice how these walls will shut out a lot of light from the present classrooms. The one picture shows how close it is.

Dave says that all is on schedule or ahead and if they get a decent weather break, it should stay that way.

Test Well

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

The test well went down 180 feet. Easy drilling all the way. The tubes were put in and the insulation mortar or what ever it is was poured around it. All the tests will be run on this well and then if all tests out OK, they will drill the rest. They feel they will be able to do 3 to 4 wells a day which means 12 to 15 daysdays for that project.


Finishing the Slab and Walls

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

The whole slab was scored today, which should prevent the cracking in places they don't want it to crack.

The pouring of walls in the back should finish all the concrete walls that they are planning to do until Reim Hall is taken down. Still waiting on the slab for whatever. I think it is the trap for the science rooms that may be holding that up. Wooden walls will start soon-we hope.

Getting Ready for the Slab

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

Looks like the main slab will be poured tomorrow. The far south part has to wait for the plumbers. I think the special trap for the science room is not on site yet. As you look at the pictures, you will see some workers putting down plastic. The slab will be poured right over that area and right up to the foundation wall along Reim Hall. It looks huge. As Jim Sydow would say as he looked at it, "We sure got along for a long time with something real small didn't we?" To say the least, I say.

Photos courtesy of Prof. Ron Roehl who writes:

  • I tried to use background to be sure you knew where the pics were taken.
  • I don't know why the hydrant is facing that way.
  • The dirt road or driveway with the yellow ribbon is the road off F the loggers put in to use this winter.
  • The filled in water trench is taken from the street toward the property along Schaller's house.

Trustee's Financial Plan - September Update

At the 2008 CLC Convention, the Trustees presented a financial plan for the building of the Academic Center. This was something they believed could be possible given past giving trends within the church body. It helped alleviate concerns regarding the amount of money that would have to be borrowed commercially for the project. The following link shows the latest update from the Trustees in how the current financial status compares with that plan:

At the fall Coordinating Council meeting, the Trustees gave this financial update of the building. During their presentation they unveiled t-shirts conveying the message: "Git-R-Done!" On the back of the shirt was a picture of the proposed building:

Project Benefits Other ILC Campus Issues

From Site Manager, Tom Beekman:

Like the Commons/Dining Hall project, every effort is being made to pick up 'freebies' for other longstanding issues on campus thru the use of contractors who may be on site for the actual building project. The tree removal is one example of that on the AC project. Others items we are hoping to get 'free' benefits from in the future are:
  • Using the expansion of the retention/detention basin area by the lower softball fields as a source of borrow (fill) material for the AC project. Significant savings by not having to truck in borrow from off site and significantly improves the retention area.
  • Disposing of concrete materials from the building demolition off the left field edge of the baseball field. We will dig a hole and bury the concrete at this location and use it to extended the playing area of left field on the baseball field. Significant savings because we don't have to pay for construction material disposal at a public landfill and a better baseball field.
  • Consolidation of some older sanitary sewer and storm sewer lines into one required for the AC project. We strategically located some of the AC utility work to allow it to upgrade some existing lines on campus. This can be done at no extra cost to the AC project since the work has to occur anyway, and we clean up some old stuff at the same time.

Friday, September 12, 2008

Logging Completed

This past week the logging necessary for the Academic Center (AC) was completed. The loggers did the work for the value of the logs. The loggers are part of a firm that owns a lumber mill. So whatever they cut is going directly to their own mill.

In addition, ILC has used the opportunity of having loggers on site to take out a number of other trees whose removal was not required for the AC building itself. These trees are also being removed at no cost to ILC and what would be their annual operating budget.

So not only are we saving $5K-$10K on the AC by not including this as part of the bid package, ILC (and thus the CLC) is saving perhaps another $1-$5K on general tree removal expenses on campus.

Ground Is Broken!

Today a groundbreaking service was held at the site of the new Academic Center following the ILC opening service. President John Pfeiffer referred to the new building project in his opening service sermon and ILC Regent, Pastor Ted Barthels, had some comments reminding us of the Lord's hand at work in making this project possible. Following the opening service a crowd gathered at the building site, in front of the soon-to-be-demolished Cottage. It is here that ground was broken after ILC Building Project chairman, Pastor Michael Roehl, gave approval for the project to begin. Also present were the architect, Jayme Bowe; ILC Regent, Dave Aymond; ILC President, Prof. John Pfeiffer; and ILC Facilities Manager, Luther Sieg.
