Accessibility is at the forefront of this renovation, which requires major changes. A new mechanical space is being created out front and will be connected to the old mechanical space by a new concrete block wall. Out back, a new foundation has been poured for a larger walkout basement. The new HVAC ducts are installed considering the new energy code. Framing for the new elevator begins.
