The construction work on the Municipal Building is in its final stages. Window replacements on the upper floor of the east elevation of the Old City Hall have been completed and the large “garage door” window is installed. Replacement of the limestone base and stone copings has been completed and a final washing of this elevation is underway.
The roofing contractor has finalized the replacement work on all the roof sections. Only minor finishing touches are left as the interface between the roof and the outward facing elevations are completed.
Installation of the new “blonde” brick is almost finished, with only some caulking work left to complete. The scaffolding has been removed from the sidewalk and touch-up work has begun.
The project will be moving into the final stages of completion next week. The temporary fence has been dismantled and materials are being stored. The Public Services Division will be working with the general contractor next week to clean up the “checkerboard” lot. Some general housekeeping work is on the agenda; this will include tree trimming, lot sweeping, re-striping and general clean-up. The lot is expected to re-open on Thursday morning, October 3, 2013, weather permitting.
