All interior work in Building B is now complete. The roof abatement project is slated to be complete early the week of August 18th.
The heavy equipment necessary for structural demolition has arrived by barge and is currently being set up. The small connector building between Buildings C and E has already been demolished, which gives the larger equipment sufficient room to operate and maneuver. The contractors have been focusing on removing all the balconies on Building C. Once complete, the machines will begin to systematically remove the façade. The waste will be packaged and placed into containers for removal. Due to the volume of waste and the speed at which it will be generated, barging events will occur more frequently. From Roosevelt Island, the waste travels to New Jersey, where it is transferred to trucks and continues to the final disposal sites.
