Description Historical Site Analysis The trusses have bolted connections and made use of the recently invented (about 1920) split ring connector, which gave the connections a greater bearing capacity and makes more use of the individual trusses members. Some of the buildings have no footings. Where footings are present, they are undersized and shallow bearing at the surface or just below the surface of the ground. Current construction practice is to place footings below the frost depth (about 30 inches in Pleasant Grove). To rehabilitate the buildings to an acceptable safety standard and for use as offices and shops will violate the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation (36 CFR 67) since these are exposed frame structures. The distinctive features, finishes, and construction techniques cannot be preserved while maintaining the level of safety the Government requires. Remedial safety measures will also distract from the distinctive features, finishes, and construction techniques of these buildings. The property would be unusable if remedial safety measures are imposed. The buildings are no longer functional for current or future intended use (they are currently used but productivity is suffering as a result). And it is necessary to remove the existing buildings to accommodate the proposed plan. Final Report 26 April \6, 2002
