With each passing week there are more and more signs of progress at Detroit’s Grand Army building. On any given day we’re seeing more and more teams of workers. The trades are having to work around each other at this point – and we think that is a pretty good problem to have.
In both the restaurants, workers are chipping away on the floors and ceilings alike. The building had been on steam heat prior to our moving in. The addition of a true HVAC system is bringing suspended duct work throughout.
The “core” of the building houses the kitchen and baths. The duct work here runs through the wall and to the center chase.
The existing brick walls is 2 feet thick in some areas. The opening to the left run from basement to attic. It will eventually hold runs for all the mechanical systems.
Same chase, looking up.
