Demolition is nearing completion for the Michael Jordan Collision Center in Durham, NC. Walls are down, plumbing fixtures, ceiling and unnecessary ductwork have been removed.

The existing fibrous spray-on fireproofing that was originally installed years ago is no longer necessary since we are sprinklering the building.  We are going through the pain-staking, laborious process of scraping all of the structural steel to remove the fireproofing and paint the steel since the substance would otherwise be a continuous dust and maintenance problem.

Construction Surveying underway

On the exterior, construction staking is underway.  Next week tree protection fencing will be installed and rough grading behind the building will begin.  A new rear driveway is being installed to provide at-grade, thru-building access.

Getting exciting!
