Studebaker Building Façade Repairs and Roof Replacement

  • Parapet rebuilding will continue for the remainder of the calendar year.  Work is mostly quiet.

Joint cutting and caulking removal will create intermittent grinding noise and dust for the first week and then the work will be mostly quiet. Work areas will be accessed via hanging scaffolding.
  • Terra cotta repairs will continue at the west parapet wall. Work is mostly quiet but occasional drilling is expected.


Please note that all activities are subject to change based on weather and other field conditions.

Note that contractors may mobilize on site approximately 30 to 45 minutes before work commences.
    • Although contractors carefully stage construction activities to minimize disruption to the surrounding community, the nature of construction work is such that some disruptions will occur. Expect some noise, vibration, dust, and other related impacts due to construction. Visit to learn about our comprehensive clean construction program and mitigation protocols.
