Dear Lower Manhattan Community Member,
Contractor Bovis Lend Lease has obtained permits from the New York City Department of Buildings to add a second shift to the deconstruction work at 130 Liberty Street starting Monday, March 15th. Deconstruction activities will take place in two shifts: from 7am to 3:30pm; and from 3:30pm to midnight. Currently, there is only one shift, from 7am to 5pm. The second shift will only take place Monday through Friday.
Under the new permits, all deconstruction activities will be allowed to continue until sundown. However, as a condition of the permits, Bovis will cease all crane operations at sundown, meaning steel will not be lowered to the deck except those few pieces that can be lowered without a crane. In addition, debris containers will not be lowered to the ground. Similarly, all concrete operations will cease at sundown, meaning that concrete will not be broken up on the deck or crushed on the ground.
From sundown until midnight, Bovis will be permitted to continue lowering pieces of steel to the deck that do not require a crane, cutting pieces of steel that have already been lowered to the deck during the day and loading the steel and other debris into the containers on the deck. The containers will be lowered to the ground by the tower crane the following morning.
