December 2005 Construction Update

The structure of the Visitor/Administration Building has been completed and work inside the building is ongoing.  Wells for the geothermal heating and cooling system will be drilled soon.

The Horticulture/Maintenance Building is nearing complete and Queens Botanical Garden staff will soon move into their new offices and workspaces.
