Standpipes and other issues

The stairwell project was approved by the client and my first visit to the site was exciting, but also a little worrisome. On the stairwell plans, we'd identified a standpipe (for firefighting purposes) running vertically through the space... however it looked a lot more innocuous on paper than it did in real life! Here are some photos of the rough space under construction in mid-September. It was obvious that the artwork, once installed, needed to somehow overwhelm the standpipe rather than the other way around!level5constructionLevel two standpipe looks particularly awkward to work around.
