The beam we’ve been highlighting is in section C of the building. As you’ve read prior SBC posts, you’ve probably come across the letter designations for each zone of construction. Below is the image that breaks down the building into sections. Phase 1 (Middle School) was comprised of sections D, E, F, G, and H. Phase 2 (Primary School) is currently underway, and is comprised of section A, B, and C. The slide deck from last Wednesday’s meeting can be found here.
