DUNKIN DONUTS LOCKDOWN
Here is some more raw video of Dunkin Donuta Park after the City of Hartford terminated the developer , DONO LLC and Centerplan and attempted to secure the facility .Once again the video shows why the City of Hartford had no business being in the construction business.
At 1:40 is the Dunkin Donuts coffee cup that is supposed to spout steam after a Yardgoats homerun, I don't think we will be seeing steam anytime soon,
At 1:30, the policies are posted but no one will be allowed in anytime soon to obey the policies
At 2;10, these two doors are on the south side of the Stadium. who measured for these openings and where did they learn how to use a tape measure. I guess maybe cardboard and some duct tape can fill the openings
At 2;10, someone's bright idea to secure door openings. These brand new doors couldn't cost much more than a thousand dollars or so each, so why bother getting the lock cores to properly lock the door with a key. It is much easier to drill holes through the brand new doors, shove a wire through and wrap it around a 2x 4 on the other side. Never mind that it doesn't meet life safety codes for emergency exit. And forget that anyone with wire cutters can snip the wire and walk in.
It just seems insane that the door lock hardware was already installed, but someone made the decision to drill through the doors in a half assed attempt to secure a 63million dollar building. Did no one in the City Hall brain trust contemplate Monday's inevitable actions? Maybe a call to a locksmith on Thursday or Friday last week to plan on putting in the lock cores Monday to secure the building? I think DPW might actually have a locksmith on staff. But a hacker with a drill and some wire and a 2 x 4 was easier I guess
I am getting dizzy from shaking my head over the way this project has been handled ( or mishandled)
