Completion

2013

The brick masonry chimney at the Manchester Youth Development Center (YDC) power plant is an 80 ft tall structure that vents the facility’s boilers. Constructed in the first half of the 20th century, the chimney exhibited signs of severe distress and deterioration, including visible lateral displacement of the top 20 ft. SGH conducted a condition assessment of the chimney to identify the required remedial work and developed construction documents for the restoration.
