The new Ripley Chapel is really starting to emerge. An amazing amount of activity over the past week. The new window is now in place, fire sprinklers are installed and being connected to the rest of the church’s fire-suppression system, painting is very far along as is the plastering work, and acoustical panels are being placed high in the ceiling. Railings for the Chancel steps have been delivered as has the new engineered wood flooring. Seaver Construction and all the sub-contractors are working very hard to hit our goal of substantial completion early in October. As you may have heard, plans for a Celebration and Rededication of Ripley Chapel on Friday, October 18, 2019 are coming together nicely. We hope you, our church community, friends, and supporters of this Chapel renovation will join us.
The biggest problem we are encountering now is congestion in the Vine Street parking lot as all the subs’ work trucks and delivery trucks are mingling with the usual traffic that visits our facility every weekday. Our tenants, especially the NCNS, the WSCC, and the Winchester Co-op Bank have been amazingly patient and cooperative (and our staff too).
Here are some highlights of progress:
