The VMC Library and VMC Express construction activities are progressing as per the project schedule.

The 9000 sq ft library will be located on the second floor of the office building while the 400sq ft VMC Express will be located below the library directly at the street level.

Lightbox samples that will be installed on the north wall of the VMC Library.

 

Glazing work continues and glass partitions and glass walls are being installed. Carpet installation has begun, and the staged approach is anticipated to take place over the course of the next few months. Lightboxes will also be installed on the north wall of the VMC Library. Lightboxes help maximize visibility, adds vibrancy to space, and are cost-efficient and energy-saving.
