Porte cochere. The plastic grates around the autograph trees in our porte cochere have suffered damage over the years both from vehicles and from the expansion of tree roots. As a result, the grates became trip hazards.
Maintenance recently finished removing the grates and replacing them with packed gravel. The gravel eliminates the trip hazard, allows drainage and looks better than the plastic grates.
Drain Line Replacement. We are now working on the 04-stack in Tower 1. The work is going well and I expect we will stay on schedule.
I’ve noticed that Maintenance is finding many unit drain lines with significant corrosion. In these cases we are documenting the corrosion and informing the responsible parties of the damage and the necessity for replacement.
