Updates on the Building Project

Snow shovel

Shovels! Our construction crew from BNBuilders worked hard before and during the recent winter storms to manage the snow load on flat surfaces and to keep the site open as much as possible so work could continue.

Chairs! The selection of sanctuary chairs is underway. The process began in January, with requirements submitted to the design team at Hacker architects. We hope to find chairs that are attractive, can be ganged (connected together) and stacked, have arms and seat cushions, and are back-friendly. PSIT has been studying images of candidate chairs within our budget. Costs will play a role in determining materials and seat cushion. PSIT will soon conduct a “sit test” of several models. In order to better evaluate chair comfort, our sit-test team includes several additional UUC members of various body types, plus ergonomic or physical-therapy professionals.
