This revised Saturday work schedule has been communicated and coordinated with both the Marblehead Building Department & Police Department.

 

 

The project will be working on the site this Saturday 10/31/20.  Activities will consist of installation of the roofing system as well as waterproofing activities on the exterior walls of the building.  The work crew will be utilizing man-lifts and power tools (drills and saws) to support the work activities through out the day.  These are both weather sensitive activities thus the project is utilizing the favorable weather scheduled for Saturday to progress both of these activities.
