However the construction phase is nearing the time, when they will start to pour concrete. The levelling of the land has been completed, and landscaping of the perimeter road.

Aggregate is being laid, as a base for the concrete. Trucks are transporting the stone to the area during daylight hours. Earth movers are then shifting it into position.
