The new Georgia Poultry Laboratory Network headquarters in North Hall County now appears headed for completion in mid-fall.
Construction and weather issues have delayed work on the 38,000-square-foot building, which had been set to finish this month, officials said during a tour of the lab Monday.
Walls and ceilings are up, and "we're really close to getting the (finished) floor," Executive Director Louise Dufour-Zavala said.
Lab officials said they aren't in a particular hurry to move, even though the new building will be far superior to the 50-year-old one off Oakwood Road in Oakwood.
GPLN provides services including disease monitoring and testing, chick quality assurance and hatchery inspections.
