FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - The transformation of the old General Electric campus into the much anticipated Electric Works development is far from being finished.

But the main contractor is committed to making sure the public doesn’t forget about the project along the journey.

Weigand Construction has made a short video and posted it online, showing demolition work done and other site work that is underway.

The video includes drone footage.

Weigand is prepared to do monthly video updates over the next year and a half along the way to transforming the abandoned General Electric campus on Broadway into a $440-million commercial and entertainment complex.

A senior project manager for Weigand says the videos will help the public keep track of how the project is advancing, and not forget about a development that holds so much promise.

“It’s a great way to kind of show monthly progress on site. It’s a large site so it’s a way to get that holistic view of what’s really going on out here and how much is going on here and what we’re all touching at a single time,” said Cody Michaud with Weigand Construction.

Michaud says there will be footage from multiple cameras showing how the project unfolds and at the end they will provide a time-lapse record of the transformation from start to finish.

Phase one of the project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2022.
