Basement Support Structure Complete

In this short video update Andrew reviews the construction progress at The Sanctuary in Woodland Park, Colorado. After four months of work, the concrete support structure for the Barn, the first of Charis Bible College's new buildings, is in place. Crews worked diligently to prepare the base for the South-facing pre-cast wall of the basement and the interior steel framing of the structure. Much attention was also given to the new road system on the property to make way for the arrival of the pre-cast wall sections and the 260-foot-tall crane needed to erect the wall sections and 300 tons of steel. While most of the work accomplished since Andrew's last update is now underground, viewers are able to see many changes in the landscape as his camera crews move around the campus.
