April 15-28, 2013 AVL Site Update


The construction process is complex and there will be dirt, trucks and noise. We will do our best to anticipate challenges and provide information on this page for the New Belgium site construction process.  Thank you, in advance, for your patience.


Update as of 4/24/13: This SATURDAY, 4/27/13 there has been a shift in the construction schedule.  Deconstruction will be happening on site for half the day on Saturday, April 27 from about 7 a.m.-noon.  This will not affect anything beyond the site activity, but just wanted to make you aware of this change.  We will try to keep up with changes throughout the construction process and appreciate your understanding that the site is dynamic and shifting.

Working Hours: Normal working hours will be Monday-Friday 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM.  Some work on Saturdays will be required and that will also be scheduled 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
