The linear accelerator vault which is used for oncology treatment is taking form. The walls and flooring will have a beautiful bamboo finish.

AND… last, but not least… our 100kw solar array that covers about 75% of our roof (and actually cantilevers past the edge of the roof in areas) is complete.
Our daily manpower has averaged about 95 workers per day this month.

We are on track to complete construction by October. Commissioning of building systems, training and turnover are currently scheduled in early November.
