If this were Jeopardy and the category was “70′s TV Shows”, then the correct question would be: “What is ‘The Six Million Dollar Man’?” In this case, it’s our school building, and the price tag will end up in the neighborhood of $3 million. But the result will be a building that has, in many ways, been rebuilt from the inside out. As you can see from today’s photos, the crew reached the point where there is nothing left but the new structural steel units after the brick and masonry was removed. In the second photo you can see that the steel appears to have been painted white – it’s actually the intumescent coating, a special fire-retardant barrier that is applied to the structural steel, and is part of the standard safety measures used in building.
