Adaptive reuse projects often need updates to the accessibility of the building. The original entrance was above the sidewalk and the old steps weren’t ADA accessible or in great shape. In this video, workers cut concrete, excavate, and prepared for a completely new main entrance and elevator. The entrance had to be changed for ADA accessibility and making the entrance level with the sidewalks.
Phase: Lobby Excavation and Entrance Construction
Summary of work:
- Cut out concrete slab
- Dug out dirt and unneeded material
- Prep for elevator shaft
Next Steps: Interior work
