Construction Update 02/24/2015

Dear SR Community,

Here’s what is happening with our construction projects at SR this week:

  • Roof framing at the CMH*
  • Sheet rock at the Village
  • Hardware at the Admin Building**

*Annex roof framing at the CMH is nearly complete. The more complicated Temple Octagon roof framing has begun this week.

** ”Dry shell” construction on the Admin Building is nearly complete. We have begun the process of obtaining a building permit to begin “Tenant Improvements” or TI. This is the process of adding interior walls and other improvements to make the building functional.

Couple of pics from inside the CMH. This is from the Connecting Foyer looking into the Temple Octagon.

A New Community Meditation Hall
to Support Our Sangha

Located in a serene open grassland hillside setting, with an outdoor terrace and arrival space, the new Community Meditation Hall will create an environment conducive to practice and will form a respectful setting for the precious teachings we offer.

If you’ve attended classes in the Community Hall or volunteered in our administrative offices, you’ll know that the conditions here are not sustainable: dilapidated trailers, challenging lay-out, difficult logistics. This next building phase will be the second of four phases that will complete the approved 1988 build-out of the Spirit Rock campus. Designed by local notable green architectural firm Hart Howerton, our permanent new buildings with green design functions will improve all aspects of Spirit Rock’s programs and operations.
