Rising Steel

With the Cape Cod Canal railroad bridge standing sentry, the steel building that will make up NMLC’s rehab center gradually claims its own place along Buzzards Bay’s landscape. This is the final week that construction enthusiasts will be able to see “right through” the rapidly forming hospital building, because the insulating walls and metal and plexiglass sheathing of the structure will soon be added. These views of the cosestudi-designed, W.W.Reich-built facility show progress as of the first week of August, 2009.
