Phase I of the demolition project is now complete. All building foundations have been removed and backfilled. The team has been working to level the entire Phase I parcel before shifting their focus to the south of the Goldwater site.

Work continues in Phase II. Structural demolition of Building J, the southernmost building, continues and is approximately 50% complete. Preparatory work on Building E is underway with façade demolition expected to start in the coming weeks.

The ductbank operation continues along the west roadway. Much of the installation takes place within the current fence line, although there are locations where work must take place in the roadway.
