They pour more concrete each day.

The western wall of the Brant Museum site that is being transformed is in place.

Much of the northern wall is in place.

The house sits in steel beams on the northern side – it gets moved around as construction and concrete pours are done elsewhere on the site.

Much of the western wall is now in place.

Completion date: 2019 – exactly when – depends on the weather.

What will there be in the way of program once the site is completed? No word yet – the Museum staff are being tight lipped about what the opening offer is going to be.

The city has hired an international exhibition design firm to create what the public will see. Kubik, a multi-national corporation has been awarded the contract to provide the interpretive design, fabrication and installation at Joseph Brant Museum.
