Renovations on our new building – Demolition work has finally begun on the second floor concrete slab separating the upper and lower levels of our future sanctuary. Demolition of the second floor vault is still underway. The hardest part of that job — the ceiling — has been completed. Other demolition work is underway to prepare for the installation of new stairways between the second and third floors and from the second floor down to the lobby.
Work began to close certain window openings and two fire escape doors at the West end of the Sanctuary (facing the wetlands). Work will begin soon to expand two pairs of windows at the second floor level at the end of the sanctuary. Our contractor is eager to get that work done while they still have a floor to work from.
