Note ID: JL570
Weather Conditions: Cloudy, mid-60's
Report Author: Joseph D. Lahendro
Report Date: 5/3/1999
Location: Mansion - Basement - Security Chief (E) / Office (R)
Work Type: Demolition
Notes: Video and digital photos of a partial brick wall uncovered by the demolition laborers below the floor slab. Due to suspected hazardous materials discovered in the below-slab fill, further excavation could not be performed beyond what the laborers had already uncovered. The paritial wall begins just below the former slab in this area, and the top of the wall shows signs of demolition implying thewall originally was higher. The wall forms a corner with north and west sides, 6' to 9' inside the existing walls forming this space. Southeast of the brick corner, the below-slab fill is obviously random building rubble. Brick faces along the inside of the corner are painted white, and the mortar bed joints are roughly troweled at an angle against the top of the bottom brick course. Only the width of the west wall was uncovered and is approximately 8 1/2" wide, two brick wythes. Approximately 1'-4" below the top of the partial brick wall is the top of a concrete slab, roughly level with the existing floor level in the eastern side of the basement. The brick wall mortar is hard and appears to be gray. The inside face of the wall's north side roughly aligns with an existing brick wall at the eastern side of this space. It was decided that, because of the suspicious material, the abatement contractor would first remove the rubble fill material southeast of the uncovered wall. Cara Metz, with VDHR, also asked that the top of the wall be fully exposed for study and documentation tomorrow.
