The Third Floor Slab (West Wing) was completed yesterday after a solid 20 hours of casting. This completes another 13,000 sq feet of space that covers the OB GYN section of the hospital including 3 operation theaters, birthing rooms and 37 patient beds. Despite still being in the rainy season, the weather was very favorable again with only a couple brief periods of rain throughout the entire day. There was a peak of 240 men (and one woman - Holly) on site during the day of casting (160 carrying/loading labors, 15 machine operators, 25 vibrators/cleaners/steel binders/misc labor, 8 concrete levelers, 4 plumbing/electrical workers, 6 workshop finishers, 25 supervision.)
