Much of the work this summer is focused on the Basement level of Buildings 12, 14 and 16 (the original Schoolhouse). Work includes the complete renovation of the kitchen along with the expansion of the Small Dining Room and the addition of new Life Safety Systems, HVAC equipment (the entire new and old school will be air conditioned), structural support, and data and telecommunications drops.

Within Graham House the stair and elevator core of Building 18 is being demolished and new steel added at each floor. This is the most complex part of this summer's work, requiring incredible coordination of trades, materials and personnel. Demo began at the top and is working its way down through new and old construction. All the steel for this section was successfully delivered to the site several weeks ago and placed out on each floor.
Facade water proofing continues on the southern and western walls. Fireproofing also continues on floor undersides.
After the steel goes in, steel decking follows. Here's a shot of the 6th floor completed with decking before the concrete floor is poured.
