...inside the building! With all the rain we've been getting in Baton Rouge lately, we've experienced several leaks in the building. Never an acceptable sight, especially when walls have been closed up and floated (some painted). Roofer got a late phone call today.
HVAC set back
For most clients, field hanging conflicts leading to a 6" ceiling drop is generally accepted. Not for this building (or client)! HVAC installation was halted today for what was once understood as a 4"-6" ceiling drop, now turned into a 10"-12" drop in ceiling height. Summoning engineers and subcontractors back to the drawing board.
The centerpiece in jeopardy
After all the love and work put into this 75 yo. oak tree, it's livelihood is now jeopardized by the amount of rain we've been getting and the pooling of water around its base due to what looks like the city's backed up drainage system. Pumping water out until we can get a full inspection and assessment of the drainage problem. Continuing to be vigilant to help this tree thrive. This is worrisome and oh so upsetting.
The building envelope is closed up (partially roughed in and waterproofed), so construction is halfway underway... Now onto finishes and interior work, which has been going on full force!
And the fritted glass pattern is...
The bamboo-inspired, organic and natural approach. We have to fine tune the mock up with the correct reflective glazing (spy the hard hat?), but the pattern is finalized. Any thoughts?
