The new laboratory spaces are coming along at 344 Winchester. Walls are up everywhere and some cabinetry has been installed. Most of the specialized equipment is not yet installed, but will be very soon. The conservation assistants got to see the spaces for the first time as they came along on the walk-through on March 4th. Senior Conservation Assistant, Karen Jutzi, took some photos that show the progress. Can’t wait to see the site today!
