Recovery Act Project Update

Corner of Celebrezze wall with bolts for overclad hangingRecovery Act-funded roof and facade replacement began in October 2011 and is nearly completed. The Celebrezze project’s use of a double-wall facade replacement system (pictured under construction at left) is believed to be the single largest application in the United States. 

The project's primary goals were to shore up the deteriorated existing facade and provide blast protection to meet Defense agency safety requirements. As an additional benefit, the new wall is expected to reduce energy consumption significantly and, in the process, save roughly $700,000 per year.
