Welcome Back! Week 1/Day 2 E10, EC&H
Transcript of Welcome Back! Week 1/Day 2 E10, EC&H
Sharing Christ's Love
It is hard to imagine that underneath the wonderful worship and great stone
walls of All Saints lays a huge subterranean infrastructure!
But, we have serious work to do. Ancient, moldy manuals are unreadable. The furnace is soon to be out of compliance with law. Corrosion, leakage and inattention have added to the deteriorated basic health of essential facilities.
Water damage along the West wall may be caused by the leaking roof and/or water leaching through the mortar.
When strong West winds drive heavy and sustained rain onto the West wall of the Nave, water emerges from the wall inside, in spots below the rafters; such as at the South wall abutments. This may be the surfacing of water which actually came from roof leaks and migrated through the wall until surfacing lower, in which case repairs to the roof will resolve the challenges of mid-wall water infiltration.
If water is found to pass through the wall after the roof project is done, the outside avenues through which the water passes must be pinpointed. First, the capstones on the wall need to be removed and the flashing, if any, on the wall should be inspected for possible leaks.
Secondly, we need then require a water penetration study of the West wall.
Serious West Wall Leaks
Our Beloved Slate Roof...
in two parts!
The slate roof over the Nave and Chancel was actually built in stages using two differing qualities of slate. You can see the difference with the naked eye.
The front of the Nave is a darker, higher quality slate, the second half shows what happens when you cut quality in order to cut costs. The slates are vastly more deteriorated and desperately need to be replaced.
Slate roofs normally have a maximum life of 50 years depending on the quality of slate used in the construction. The slate was laid down in the mid 1920s. It has delaminated, discolored, and broken off. Daylight could recently be seen through the Chancel roof peak.
For as long as anyone can remember, rain water has passed inside and down the West wall of the Nave, resulting in a disfiguring accumulation of mold, dust, and mortar salts. Joe Alonso, of the Cathedral, and his roofer, Joe Skillman, both feel most of our leakage proglem stems from the water barriers (flashing, counter flashing, and felt roof covering) where the slate roof meets the capstones on the West Wall.
Work on the roof will enable further investigation on the roof decking, and roof beams.
Over the years, the water infiltration on the West Wall has caused mold to grow. Dust, dirt, and mortar salts compound the problem. Mortar grit falls onto the rear floor and wall pews.
Another project should be accomplished at the same time. Before the North Wall of the Chancel was water-sealed 20 years ago, mortar emerged under the wall lintel and dried on the wall next to the organ console. This can be removed by washing or micro-particle blasting.
Not only has grit fallen from the West Wall, but passing truck vibrations over the years and recent earthquakes also contribute to the loosening of stone mortar.
Dust and cobwebs have also accumulated in the hard to reach Rood Beam, and on the lintel around the chancel.
Loose Ends...and wires
All Saints has become adept at redirecting attention away from costly repairs and ugly deterioration so that parishioners can concentrate on Sharing Christ's Love.
It is time, however, to face the reality of the little This and Thats that have needed correcting for so long.
In prior years, unsightly electrical wires were strung along the Nave clerestory face. Sound, fire alarm, and lighting projects completed since 2000 might have rendered these wires obsolete. To the extent they still have a necessary function, they should be moved up to the lintels of the walls. This project would be included in a Nave sound or electrical upgrade project, later described.
The Sanctuary, St. Mary's Chapel, and Nave North wall contain void spaces best covered by Church appropriate dark grey metal grills.
The Narthex floor tiles require resurfacing.
The flagstone and brick between the curbside landing and the Narthex doorway has delaminated or is sunken, and the mortar has badly deteriorated. We need to substitute long lasting mortar. and more durable flagstones, capable of carrying heavy loads. The landing bricks need to be re-leveled.
A portion of the plaster crown molding in St. Joseph's Chapel has fallen and must be repaired.
The Narthex exterior doors are badly in need of carpentry work, staining and refinishing with a more durable varnish.
Let's Get Modern
Well, maybe not this modern, but our Audio Visual systems do need updating.
Its always important to hear the service clearly, even from the back row.
In addition, use of this equipment is increasingly important as a method of communication with home-bound parishioners as well as those who wish to revisit the wonderful sermons that come out of the pulpit on a weekly basis.
Audio Visual and Lighting
The sound system is fairly news, but there are shortcomings. The audio processor (in the tower) is caput. We use it for sound from the roving and wired microphones.
We also need a table microphone for the altar.
The back-up audio mixer, in the rear of the Nave, should be replaced with a modern digital mixer. The mixer would process and control not only Nave audio, but digital video functions; video inputs and video recording, video pan and focus controls, and digital copying of sound and /or video to DVDs, CDs, and removable thumb drives.
Video cameras must cover the Transept, the Chancel, and the Pulpit, and video controls should include panning, focus, and presets.
The Nave and side chapel pendant lights, and the lights from the roof peak should be controlled by modern digital controls, with presets for different ceremonial scenarios.
All Saint's Art
On three sides of the Columbarium, the flashing underlying the capstones was installed without a reverse curl lip. Moreover, the flashing horizontal surface was not canted slightly downward, toward the surrounding Church roof. These construction methods would have diverted salts leaching out of the capstone mortar from dripping down to deface the Columbarium walls and windows. The wall capstone needs bending and canting.
The Columbarium capstone mortar has broken away from the stones over time. This can be rectified either by (1) eliminating capstones, (2) lifting, cleaning, and re-mortaring the existing capstones, or (3) substituting longer limestone or cement capstones.
Salts have bled, and will continue to bleed, out of the Columbarium wall stone martar, defacing the Columbarium walls. The salts have hardened but can be removed by micro-particle blasting.
Outside the Grafton-side glass entry doors to the Columbarium, heavy rain water overcomes the threshold channel drain and floods the hallway. The solution is to lift and re-grade the butler block floor away fro the doors and toward the nearby drain.
Wind driven rain passes through the central and of those same double glass doors. A metal covering of the door jamb is required.
There were several construction errors during the original construction of the Columbarium. Remediation of these errors is long overdue.
The Church is heated and cooled by water pumped through the Church from boilers and a chiller (1993) located behind the Preschool Offices (boiler room), and the Old Church basement (chiller room). There is an older 25 ton air conditioning unit which was designed to be used n lieu of the mail chiller, during the "shoulder" seasons, on days when cooling was needed in the Parish House.
Time of day, off-on control of most air handlers, and temperature control of the larger air units, is accomplished by BASYS Systems software located on a desktop computer located in the administrative officer. These controls are stored in the computer limited in what they monitor, and are subject to power failures in the Church. In the five air handler rooms, in the Parish House attic, and in the closet to the Acolyte Room (Memorial Hall), hearing and cooling commands are translated by controllers into valve openings and closings.
The boilers work fine. However, the two fuel injection mechanisms on the boilers have to be replaced with more fuel efficient mechanisms. The pump speed controller (VFD) needs to be tested, and the VFD possibly replaced.
The 100 ton York Chiller runs well. However, it uses Freon, which will be phased out by EPA in five years. So, replacement of that chiller can be delayed pending professional analysis of a replacement system.
The 25 ton chiller still works but does a poor job cooling when outside heat is over 75 degrees and doesn't cool at all outside Parish House where the offices are located. This chiller needs to be replaced with one that actually works where and when we need it to.
Problems with software controllers, chiller/heater room pumps, and power outages, plague the Staff almost constantly, but most often at the hottest times and on Sunday Mornings. Numerous odd hours and overtime visits by repair persons are costing the Church an inordinate amount of money.
We must replace electrical controllers, valves, and/or damper controls, in the Nave and Memorial Hall air handlers.
The BASYS system software is out of date, non-cloud-based, and is not compatible with modern control systems, and has limited read-outs and functionality. All systems now are cloud based and provide warnings when something is amiss.

The art in All Saints' chapels are both beautiful and valuable and need to be preserved for the congregation and to the glory of God
Candle soot defaces the Sanctuary Reredos. It cannot be simply washed off because the Reredos is made of limestone which absorbs water. This cleaning requires an extraction technique called poulticing. This exquisite art also needs to be properly lit.
The two paintings in St. Joseph's Chapel are very dark and difficult to see. They should both be illuminated with their own, energy efficient lighting. It would be best if they could have their own circuits and controls. The oil painting, "After the Scourging", located in St. Joseph's Chapel, is also very dirty and must be cleaned.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
After every planting the tree must be tended in order to grow.
A water submeter on the chiller room supply lines needs to be installed to obtain a 60+ percent credit against chiller water consumption (our biggest consumer)
When potable water pressure is cut outside the Church, contaiminated water in certain Church piping systems can back up into the potable water pipes. This is prevented by "backflow preventers" located throughout the Church. These are inspected annually. However, the fire sprinkler supply pipe in the Old Church basement hallway was never adapted to a backflow preventer. ??????
A waste water sump can be found under the Preschool kitchen sink - the lowest point in the Church. When the sanitary sewer line was beling lined under grafton Street, that line was blocked for 8 hours and cooling tower reservoir overflow water passing into the Church's sanitary sewer lines gushed out of the sump. This incident was what led us to discover that the sump is not sealed!
The electrical circuitry in the Church was established in the mid 1920s, then updated in 1954 and again in year 2000. Only the 2000 additional circuitry is plotted and documented. The electrical panels for the older circuitry are difficult to trace from the descriptions on the breakers, and the panels have not been tested for loose wires and other fire hazards.
It is proposed that each circuit be traced throughout the Church and each panel and breaker be labeled using a unitary labeling system.
We also need to test all breaker panels for safety hazards, and correct any hazards found.
