January 4, 2019 Expansion Update

As we set changes and challenges for ourselves in this new year, there are lots of changes happening this first week of January at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park! Here is a look at what happened in our Welcoming the World: Honoring a Legacy of Love expansion project:

  • The concrete floor in the Garden Pavilion was poured on Thursday, January 3, using nearly 60,000 yards of concrete.
  • The structural steel for the roof has arrived for the Concessions building and installation is underway.
  • Prep work has also started for the granite facade of the Concessions building.
  • The entry to the Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden continues as we wait for the installation of the terrazzo flooring
  • Footings and walls continue for the Picnic Pavilion
