Work continues to progress steadily inside the Auto Building at 158 Sterling Road. The focus continues to be split between restoration and the introduction of new and necessary services, such as electrical wiring.
The heritage focussed work seeks to repair and preserve key elements, such as the original (circa 1920) wooden doors that were set at the opening of each floor to the main north and south stairwells. These doors are being set aside and will be lightly restored and then put in place as decorative features once restoration work is complete.
The window surrounds are being worked on to prepare them for waterproofing and the installation of new windows. Electrical conduit and wiring is continuing to be installed on each floor.
Work is expected to proceed more rapidly next month and we will check back in on progress next month.
