Diani Building Corp. started historic material removals this week inside the building and at the 4th floor roof area. Every door,  door trim, window trim, and baseboard is assigned an IIN (item identification number), which is used to track the piece from removal to reinstallation. In addition to the IIN, all historic material is photographed before removal to document its condition. The removal process requires extreme care and handling of these materials that are almost 100 years old. All of the materials are being stored off-site in secured locations. The original wood doors will be restored and re-fitted for new hardware before they are returned to project next year. The terra cotta caps have been removed around the perimeter of the roof. They are also treated has historic material and they will be re-installed later in the project. The first scaffolding on the project is now in place around the exterior of the upper dome area. The clay tile roof will be removed starting next week as the first step in dismantling the entire roof dome which will allow the seismic repair and upgrade work to begin. The original clay roof tiles will be blended with new replacement tiles to restore the roof to its original condition when all of the repairs and upgrades are complete. Micro pile installation will start around the exterior of the building next week. 64 micro piles have been installed so far in the basement.
