Cofrin Library: May 24 – July 26
Update: The anchoring system will start on the north side of the building. We will be inspecting the interior spaces of the third floor for access to the outside wall in rooms 303b, 304, 305a, 305b, 305d, 305e, 307, 306a, & 306b.
Contractors will install mechanical anchor systems into six locations of 228 square feet each on the exterior brick façade. Each area is located between the third and fourth floors of the building. Noise will be a major factor during this installation. Some minor vibration may be noticed by occupants on these floors of the building. Contractors will provide protection at each plaza entrance and/or will close entrances on an interim basis based on their work in that area.
