Hart Senate Office Building Roof and Skylight Replacement

Construction activities for the repair and replacement of the Hart Senate Office Building’s roof and skylights are underway. In support of this effort, a portion of the sidewalk along C street, between the Hart and Dirksen Senate Office Buildings, will be closed through the summer of 2015. The sidewalk closure is required for a material hoist on the side of the building that will facilitate delivery of construction materials to the roof. Signage will be posted to assist pedestrian traffic affected by the sidewalk closure. Additionally, in August 2014 the AOC will begin installing hanging scaffolding throughout the Hart Building atrium to support interior construction and repair activities related with the project.

Beginning Tuesday, August 5, 2014, some of the roof work is expected to create noise. AOC will measure the sound levels at the property line to ensure that the sound readings do not exceed the District’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs regulations. This portion of the work may occur at night or on the weekends and is expected to be completed by fall 2014.

Construction activities are expected to continue through the summer of 2015.
