Merrill Gardens at Ballard is looking fantastic! The exterior fiber cement cladding gives this building a sharp urban appearance with its faux wood facade. Unlike wood cladding, these panels will hold up to the elements and are very low maintenance. The cladding on the east elevation is nearly complete as the crew progresses to the south elevation. The interior spaces are coming along nicely with the first coat of drywall painting and cabinet installation beginning on the upper levels working down. In the main entry of the facility, the custom staircase and mezzanine rails are complete. Utilities services are set up; permanent power is next on the list. Our crew is working hard approaching a completion date this summer.
