More earthquake damage

Posted by Callan Bentley

These are all in the northern stairwell between the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Godwin Building here on the Annandale campus of NOVA. The cement blocks have clearly separated along their mortared edges, and the disruption of the paint layer in a series of en echelon fractures reveals that deeper structural issue. I find this a bit scary.

I have no information about what, if anything, is being done here to fix this issue or cover it up. Any advice to pass on to my supervisors?
