DATE  August 3, 2000   TIME  3:30 p.m.

PRESENT AT MEETING   Steve Kelly - Wallace Builders
                                                Paul Buckley - PIC Electric
                                                Bob Mastriana - 4M Company

NOTES

  • Bob inspected the installation of the steel supports and was extremely pleased how the work was proceeding. Once the steel plates are painted, they will appear completely inconspicuous which preserves the historical integrity of the courtroom ceiling beams.
    Bob took Commissioner Shipley on a personal tour of courtroom # 1 to show him the progress of the work.

  • The electricians are having difficulty centering the new locations for the future chandelier ceiling lights because of the location of the structural steel beams in the attic above the ceiling but are devising an offset junction box to accommodate this.

  • Wallace Builders has 4 carpenters and I laborer, and PIC Electric has 2 electricians.
    Doug Wallace has informed Easley & Rivers to immediately begin restoring the plasterwork and to follow right behind them starting Monday.

DATE   August 7, 2000   TIME   2:00 p.m.

PRESENT AT MEETING   Lou DeJulia - Mercer County Maintenance
                                                Bob Mastriana - 4M Company

NOTES

  • Bob met with Lou to check on the progress of the courtroom # 1 repairs. The painters were finishing the steel plates to match the color of the plaster. Two painters are working during the day immediately following and finishing the work being done in the evening installing the steel. Once the steel was painted you can't tell where it was even installed.

  • We also went up into the attic to check on the steel rods and plates, and we discussed having them cut off to the top of the bolts to reduce the potential hazard they could become. Bob did inform Wallace Builders of this and they agreed to do this.

  • The plasterers were to start Tuesday morning rebuilding the damaged beam in courtroom # 1. However, telephone calls were made by both Denny and Bob to make sure they didn't delay. This work must be completed as expeditiously as possible due to the curing time of the plaster required prior to painting. At this point, except for the plaster work, it appears the progress is ahead of schedule.

  • Lou is coordinating the cleaning of the upholstery, drapes, etc. to remove all the plaster dust and then will have the balance of the courtroom cleaned upon completion.
