Project Updates

The elevators at Hauser are going well. The elevator was down overnight for 8 hours but the problem got resolved.

Chestnut Manor is going well. There were 2 sewer pumps that shut off and flooded some of the elevators. Two maintenance men pumped them out and cleaned out the elevator.

Emergency Generators are up and we are waiting for the fence to go up.
