Exterior Work Has Begun On New Hospital Building At Former Laurelon Terrace Condominium Construction Site

Work has started on the exterior of the new building on the Children's Hospital construction site, where the 136 Laurelon Terrace Condominiums once stood for several decades. 

Crews have begun to install the natural stone shingles metal window frames and glass, and ribbed metal panels.

Special lifts are used to help workers safely move up and down the building and from side-to-side. The "Fraco lifts have become a popular alternative to scaffolding and create safer work environments and efficiency in installation, the Children's Hospital Construction Blog says.

Later this year work will begin on installation of the frosted glass awnings and the orange, green and blue colored glass fins.
