At this point, the mechanical chase at the G.A.R. building in Detroit is completely open and the trades are busy running their systems from basement to attic. There was an interesting negotiation between all the companies vying for as much space as they could get. At the end of the day, the single shaft will contain ventilation from the from the restaurants, plumbing lines, electrical lines, the HVAC system, IT, phones, a security system and on and on and on.As none of these elements existed previously so walls and floors were opened for better access. These photos show the prep work on the 4th floor.
