Current Project Update


May 11, 2018

  • Installation of the electric hoist on the Lafayette Street side of the building is scheduled to continue the week of May 14, and is scheduled to occur over two to three weeks. Installation will require the temporary removal of windows on the east facade of the building.
  • Contractors are scheduled to install a temporary loading dock in the adjacent parking lot the week of May 14 to facilitate deliveries to the hoist. This work will involve the removal of asphalt surfaces within the parking lot area and the pouring of new concrete.
  • Intermittent staging of a boom truck at this location will be required in order to lift materials required for the hoist installation to the roof of the building.
  • Contractors are scheduled to continue interior demolition the week of May 14. Debris removal and deliveries will occur on the Lafayette side of the building via the electric hoist.
  • At the direction of the DOT, contractors are scheduled to continue the erection of a staging area on the sidewalk directly outside the building's northeast corner, on the Lafayette street side, the week of May 14. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic will be rerouted around the staging area.

Scope of Work

  • The project consists of interior renovation, the installation of new windows, installation of new roofing and rooftop mechanical equipment, and the restoration of entryways on Lafayette Street and Broadway.
  • Interior work includes demolition, abatement of asbestos containing material (ACM), and construction. Contractors will follow safe abatement protocols for the removal of all hazardous materials.
  • Construction staging and deliveries will utilize the Lafayette Street side of the building.
  • An electric hoist will be installed on the east side of the building adjacent to the parking lot on Lafayette Street in order to facilitate the movement of materials in and out of the building. All materials deliveries and debris removal will occur via this hoist.
  • For pedestrian safety, the sidewalk bridging will remain up on Broadway and Lafayette Street, as necessary.
  • As with any active construction site, dust will be generated in the area immediately surrounding the work and noise will be generated by mechanical equipment, such as jackhammers.
