Ziobrop pretty well covered this but anyways this photoset from 2814 Isleville shows it as well.

The columns have been poured and the gravel is levelled to the top of the bases yet there is a significant gap between that grade and the door into the lobby. Once the drainage pipes and floor are poured the two will be flush with each other.
