   Missouri Theater Renovations: Restoration & Waterproofing Contractors Inc. has been awarded this project and work began on July 5, 2017. The scope of the original work consisted of repointing, stone repair and canopy ceiling repair with alternate bids for tile replacement and accent lights. The contractor began repointing the towers and discovered the towers need more repair work than anticipated due to water damage since the previous fa├žade renovation in 1995. The towers will need to be lowered and reconstructed to assure the repairs made extend well into the future of the structure. A structural engineer made an assessment that the core of the towers had deteriorated to a point that reconstruction was necessary to remedy the problem. Currently more exploratory investigations into the tower structures is planned in the next few weeks to determine the scope of repairs needed to properly restore the towers to their original condition with existing materials removed and replaced after the unseen core is repaired. At this time the scope of repairs and costs have not been determined for the long term repairs. Project completion will occur in early 2018.
