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.
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.
