December 4, 2002--NE stairwell: To increase seismic bracing for Olin, steel beams are attached at strategic locations.

December 4, 2002--NE stairwell: The steelworker fits bolts through the steel beam and into pre-drilled holes filled with epoxy. He drives the bolts deep into the holes and then tightens the nuts.
