IT IS ALL COMING TOGETHER — Members of Ironworkers Local 6 worked together, to weld pieces of the steel shoring, which can be seen, lifted into the air. Photos provided by Seth Wochensky.
SPRINGVILLE — Steel shoring was affixed to the Springville Center for the Arts’ Art’s Cafe, located at 5 East Main St. in Springville, on June 1.

SET ME UP — Steel shoring was placed on the front and rear of the building.
Lumber was first sandwiched on the inside and outside of the front and rear walls of the building. Steel columns were affixed to the common walls, the ground and the lumber assemblies, to stabilize the whole structure.

The front was scheduled to be completed by the end of this week.

WORK IN PROGRESS — Employees of Ironworkers Local 6 weld pieces of the metal shoring together.
The next step of the building renovation includes the interior demolition.

WORKING HARD — Joel Kamats from J&J Crane moves the steel shoring in place.
All of the labor was donated and completed by Jay Biscup and Seneca Steel, Joel Kamats and J&J Crane and a crew from Ironworkers Local 6, with additional help by Bryan Cirbus, Asa Cerasani, Village Trustee Alan Chamberlin, Kris Kensinger, John Erdmann, Ed Heary, Keith Cordaro, Bill McGirr and SCA Executive Director Seth Wochensky.
