Structural steel began arriving at the site for the Congress Avenue Building in early fall and began to transform the landscape immediately. “In the next month and a half, everyone will begin to understand how large this building is,” project leader John Bollier said in early September. The project, one of the largest in Connecticut, remains on schedule with steel work scheduled for completion by March. The construction force of 60 increased to 80 with the arrival of the steel and will rise to between 500 and 600 during the coming year. By January 2002, the building should be completely enclosed.
