October 11th: After three days of on-site construction, we are pleased to say that the NRC buoyant pavilion is ready to take on the winter and the coming freeze! The railings and the cross-bracing, shown below, were the final components to attach. We find the pavilion to be an attractive strucure to experience, and it has been quite a unique experience for all involved to build!

The next step is to outfit the pavilion with the necessary sensor equipment to monitor the behavior of the pavilion’s buoyancy elements as the winter freeze comes and goes. Stay tuned for that news, and look through the project gallery to see photos documenting the build process!
