City Council approved an early demolition package for the new library. The intent of the demolition is to expose all structural and architectural elements to facilitate the design of the building. This demolition will expose any areas of concern that are inherent to renovations/construction of existing structures. It will also allow Hidell and Associate Architects to produce accurate Construction Administration Documents to avoid unnecessary surprises or delays.
Costs include having an electrician make the building safe for demolition. All ceilings, lighting, drywall partitions, metal studs, flooring, freezer floors, MEP ductwork, conduit, wiring, fire protection system piping and equipment will be removed. Utility trenches will be saw cut and existing concrete will be removed. All waste will be recycled so that we have a "Green" demolition.
