To maintain the structural integrity of the exterior building envelope of the Armory Square Historic District's 1907/1930 NYS Armory (currently the Discovery Center of Science and Technology, d.b.a. MOST), restoration of several excessively aged and deteriorated building components is overdue. The areas requiring replacement and/or restoration include:- all built up roofing and masonry parapets over critical exhibit, IMAX theater, office, and public areas- ornate interior wood coffered ceilings and lighting damaged by water penetration- all original wood windows, wrought iron window grating - paneled wood entry doors- 2,000 SF masonry mortar joints. Additionally, the project seeks to capture runoff from the roof of the building by re-plumbing roof leaders so that they are readily accessible and may be routed to the rainwater flushing system being constructed as part of the proposed Clinton Storage Facility, a key component of the Onondaga Lake cleanup project.
