August 29 - September 12 Look Ahead

Façade removal is complete on Building C. All façade material has been packaged and removed from the site by barge. Structural demolition of the remaining columns and slabs will continue over the next two weeks until the building is fully demolished. Sorting of the rubble is ongoing. Some of the material will be recycled and some will be crushed and remain on site.

Work will soon begin on Building F, the northernmost building. Due to proximity to the street, scaffolding was erected adjacent to the building to allow workers to hand demolish the northern portions of the façade. Mechanical means will be used for the southern portions of the building.

The roof abatement work on Building B is finished and the building is now ready for structural demolition. Work is ongoing in Building E with interior demolition taking place on the lower floors.

The construction fence has been relocated to its intended and approved location in the southwest corner. As detailed in the August 6th posting, tree protection measures are being implemented and the fence move will have no impact on the current discussions with RIOC and the community about the future of the trees on this corner of the site.

Barges can be expected 2-3 times per week to maintain the flow of construction debris removal.
