February 2006 Construction Update

The  Visitor/Administration Building has been closed in and work inside the building is ongoing.  Wells for the geothermal heating and cooling system are being drilled.  Installation of the rooftop photovoltaic panels will take place soon. 

Queens Botanical Garden staff have moved into the Horticulture/Maintenance Building and are enjoying their new offices and workspaces.
