Boise World Trade Center Memorial Project Update

This project started well over a year ago, & we are finally gearing up to begin the heavy fabrication.  The goal is to have the sculpture & naming wall installed by the end of July.
The beam is sitting in the fab shop, with the beginnings of the mock-up for the stainless rings.  The major fabrication will start the week of July 8th: & I can't wait to get going on it!
Yes; this is an actual piece of beam that came from the 9/11 site...it's quite something just to see it; the damage, the rust, the history.   If you would like to see it in the shop, please feel free to email me at refinerii@yahoo.com & I can set you up with time.  Tentatively on July 9th, we will be inviting news & photographers out to get some shots of the fabrication: anyone is welcome to stop in & have a look & take some photos.  I'll be updating as we confirm the date & times.
 
This is what it will look like when we are done.
The finished piece will be installed at a new plaza in Riverside Park in Boise; right next to the current Fire Fighter's plaza.

And the original proposal, showing the plaza, landscaping, sculpture & details.

More to come, stay tuned!
