Behind the troubles at the B2 modular building: the full set of available state documents

Those reading my City Limits article, Documents Reveal Woes at Pioneering Atlantic Yards Building, note that the troubles in the building described are from 2012 through 2014.

Indeed, the documents from the state's owner's representative I received through a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request ended in September 2014. I've posted the documents on Scribd and linked them below.

(Note that I filed the FOIL request in September 2014, though the documents were not delivered until late July of this year.)

So the documents can't describe the current condition of the building, and both the developer and the state are terse but positive about the situation today. Indeed, the building, slated to be 32 stories, is steadily rising, though we don't know how long it takes to build modules or construct a floor.

Nor do we know the level of interior or facade repairs, which are hinted at in bi-weekly Construction Updates but surely not part of the plan for modular construction. The photo above shows one loose facade panel, which is far better than the situation last year, but also an indication of continuing challenges.

Questions that lingered

As I wrote two days ago, the highlighted 8/15/14 Daily Construction Report below indicated three pending issues:
  • answers to questions on whether air monitoring could take place to measure mold where it wasn't visible
  • an assessment of discolored dry wall cross sections re suspected mold
  • continued observation regarding whether gaskets might be stressed
Surely the building has progressed, and the developer and state say all is fine. But we don't know how those pending questions were specifically answered.
