Hart Building Interior Scaffold Removal

Monday, October 26, 2015

In support of demobilizing the Hart Roof and Skylight replacement project, the temporary protective netting and scaffold above the north and south atriums of the Hart Building will be removed.

This work will occur nightly between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. in the following areas:

  • South Atrium: October 26 through October 31
  • North Atrium: November 2 through November 7

During the disassembly of the scaffold, the area on the first floor of the Hart atrium directly below the overhead scaffold will be isolated and a pedestrian path will be provided so occupants can travel along the entire atrium.

Should the Senate be in session during this period, this work will be rescheduled.
