Two weeks ago we started doing some remodeling work at the Northfield National Guard Armory on Division Street. It is a nice big old brick building that has served people well and needs some upgrades. Much of the work involves updates to the mechanical systems. We are busy cutting openings, installing grilles, enlarging ductwork chases, etc.
The Armory is home to some of the Northfield YMCA programs. We are doing all we can to make sure the construction work isn’t too disruptive to their activities. Lots of children participate in the Y’s programs every day.
When we remove mechanical systems we keep the iron and steel as clean as possible so it can be recycled. There were many radiators to take out of the building. We also have removed many, many feet of steel pipe that will head off to the recycler to be made into new steel products.
