debris chute

Debris from the top of the roof is being dropped through the roof hatch and down a debris chute to the center of the field inside. Debris from the upper 90 feet of each roof bay is being dropped into the center chute through the ventilation grill area. Remaining debris from the lower sections of the bays is being fed through openings to the inside of the building.
