At Barclays Center, weekend green roof work at 6 am; no disclosure (variance?)

What's this? Well, a reader sends me a photo (right) of workers on the green roof of the Barclays Center at about 6 am.

Below is a photo from the Atlantic Yards webcam, from 6:10 am (note time stamp upper left).

However, as noted in the most recent Construction Alert (bottom), covering this week and next and dated 5/25/15, there's no mention of weekend work on the green roof.

Note that normal construction hours are weekdays after 7 am, until 6 pm. An After Hours Variance is required if there's a desire to perform construction activity before 7 am, after 6 pm, or on the weekend, according to the Department of Buildings.

Maybe they got a variance, maybe not. But even if they did, they didn't disclose it to the public.

That reflects an ongoing frustration regarding the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project: lack of transparency.

The Construction Update does contain some CYA text: Please note: the scope and nature of activities are subject to change based upon field conditions.

Still, as shown with belated disclosure of other activities, that still should prompt some announcement.
