We are pleased to share that the roof slab at Selene at Metrogate has been completed and the community has “topped off” at its full height. This is an important milestone in the construction of any community. It signifies the end of forming and brings occupancy for our homeowners one step closer.
Meanwhile, on the inside….
Work on the interior of Selene continues. With high-rise construction, construction begins on the ground floor and move upwards, with trades following each other up the building. Currently at Selene, suites are being framed on the 22nd floor. Framing is the installation of the metal studs (like the wooden 2 by 4’s used in low-rise construction) which will become the frame of the interior suite walls. As the suites are framed, electrical and HVAC rough-ins are following closely behind and have begun on the 21st floor. Plumbing rough-ins have progressed to the 20th floor and drywall is being installed on the interior suite walls on the 16th floor. Taping of the drywall is following closely behind.
