October 3: The first day of on-site construction and assembly of the NRC, pavilion took off under the supervision of architect Reuben Grin and with the help of various members of SGConstruction and University of Waterloo students Shabaan Khokhar (MA) and Tobias Feltham (BAS). Despite a rainy week, the weather stayed dry as we put the first two floats in the water. We were able to get the second floats in not too long after, and by the end of the day the floor-components of the pavilion were mounted.

The team is looking forward to day two when we will be assembling the roof structure on top of the now-floating floor.

Stay tuned for updates, as they come!
