MCMURRAN AND REYNOLDS RENOVATION : PROJECT INFORMATION
Bushey Feight Morin Architects, Incorporated, and Boggs Environmental Consultants, Incorporated, developed and implemented plans for limited repairs and repainting of the exterior of McMurran and Reynolds halls.
The building had an extremely thick coating of paint on it. The paint is consistently high in lead content. Lead paint must be removed consistent with EPA standards for hazardous materials, so that work is engineered by Boggs Environmental.
Building shutters also need to be repainted, but the aged, wood shutters are thought to be incapable of surviving a comprehensive lead abatement. They will be stripped and evaluated for repair or replacement.
A number of the eaves for the building are believed to have varying degrees of weather damage, and repairs will be made on an as-needed basis.
Once the lead paint has been eliminated, a comprehensive examination of the brick to assess the need for re-pointing will be possible. Thereafter, the entire building will be repainted. In compliance with community sentiment, the present color will be maintained.
The project will also include limited repairs to the stone steps at the front entrance.
Project completion: Summer 2006
Project cost: $1,200,000
LVI, Inc., is performing the abatement portion of the work.
