This week around the church house…
- Demolition on Buildings B & C continued in earnest, and as of Wednesday night, Building B is completely down. The demolition crew has been sorting materials and beginning to haul them away from our block. Work has begun this morning on Building C, and by their last estimate, demolition should be completed within two weeks. Foss Demolition and our crew from Blum have taken great care to ensure that Building A and all who come to the church house throughout the week remain safe in it all. For that, we are grateful!
- Grading work continues near the Poplar Street entrance, and jackhammering this week has begun to make way for the construction of our new boiler room! Joe Bircher, our fearless architect, has been working with various folks to find closely-matching brick to be used on it and the side of our new ramp.
- In the coming weeks, you’ll begin to see fencing encircling the front half of the property, scaffolding beginning to rise around the tower, and work beginning on the narthex bathrooms.
- Please note that we will be sending you road closure and access information as quickly as we get it. As of yesterday, Poplar Street has opened back up, but Spruce Street will be closed as demolition moves to the other side of the property. All ground floor doors into the will remain open every Sunday. As you come to the church house, remember that your parking options on Wednesdays and Sundays include the following: the Winston-Salem Center for Education and the Arts lot (at Sixth and Poplar), the Winston-Salem Journal lot and adjacent gravel lot (at Fifth and Spruce), street parking along Fifth, Spruce, and Poplar, and additional garages and lots within a block or two of the church.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility in this season of transition!
