  • Installation of inboard facing brick at the parapet wall on the west elevation will continue through the week of July 11, weather permitting.
  • Terra cotta repairs will continue at the south and southwest corner parapet wall for the next 2-3 weeks. 
  • Abatement of tar coating on the brick chimney on the east elevation and coping stone on the west elevation will be scheduled for the week of July 18.  This tar coating is non-friable, and the abatement work is limited to the roof level only.  All debris will be properly removed from the roof via the exterior scaffolding.
