PDS In the Field

John Lauber, PDS Senior Building Official, was called by Kenton County dispatch on 8:51 Saturday morning (April 14). Thirty minutes later he arrived at 1204 Scott Boulevard in Covington and met with the fire department, property owner and city engineer to evaluate the building. Electric and gas was shut off as a precautionary measure. Occupants were evacuated. A contractor was called by the fire department and showed up about 10:45. The city engineer and Lauber discussed / decided what and how the building was to be temporarily shored. He waited for the contractor to get materials, install the shoring and board up the building, and stayed toward the end of the process. This is the second time this building has been involved in a collision.
