Major work also occurred to architectural and structural systems. Two new two-story equipment penthouses were added. Historic preservation and restoration of VIP suites and public space with stone terrazzo wood plaster bronze doors and hardware has taken place in selected locations. The replacement blast resistant curtain walls had to match the appearance of the original curtain walls due to the landmark building status. The Switzer site is a restricted urban location with limited space for material staging. The entire perimeter of the site was maintained open for pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow. Operations of adjacent facilities were not impeded by Grunleys work at Switzer. MARY E.
