NEW OFFICE BUILDING.
A Movement on Foot to Secure a New
One for Construction Department.
Editor Virginlan-Pllot:
The administrative center of the de?
partment of construction and repair at
the Norfolk Navy Yard was, until re?
cently, located ill building- No. 31, oc?
cupying about two hundred feet in
length of the upper floor of that build?
ing, together with a portion of the
lower Moor. On the upper floor were
situated tho oilices of the naval con?
structor and his assistants, a room for
correspondence and records, another
for the Clerical force engaged in keep?
ing the flancial accounts of the depart?
ment, the requisition Office and sample
rooms, in which requisitions for ma?
chinery ami material were prepared
and where samples of the various kinds
of hardware, fittings and other articles
were kept; the office of the chief
draftsman, tho general drafting room,
the filing cases for about 10,000 plans,
two blue-print rooms, and rooms for
the preservation of records and for
general storage purposes. On the low?
er floor were situated the testing labo?
ratory, established and used for the
purpose of determining the quality of
many of the materials furnished under
contracts; a photographic room and a
large store room for the machinery
and other articles requiring special
care und attention.
By the lire of December Kith, 1900, all
these Offices were destroyed, together
wilh about 7,000 plans, and practically
I'll the records of the office. Home of
these It Is possible, at consider;!ble ex?
pense, to replace, but the large majori?
ty can never he replaced; and for years
lo come the work of the construction
department will be more or less ham?
pered by this unfortunate occurrence.
Temporary offices have been fitted In
the adjoining building (No. 3'J) in the
space previously used as the mold loft
<?t the department. liTTT this work has
been done In a crude and merely tem?
porary manner, for it would manifestly
have been inexpedient to incur any
great expense In fitting up stich ottices
and rooms in that building, which is
as completely subject to damage by fire
us building No. 31 proved to be, be?
sides which the mold loft User is an
Indispensable adjunct to the work of
the construction department, SO that
its use for office purposes can be but
temporary.
Willi the steady increase in the navy,
and the rapidly increasing Importance
of the Norfolk Yard as a factor in the
work of maintaining our ships In prop?
er and efficient condition for immediate
service it would be a very short-sigh t
od policy to lake any step short of
providing the construction department
with a suitable fireproof building de?
voted exclusively to the various uses
enumerated above. The attention of
Congress will be at once Invited lo the
Importance of speedily providing and
properly equipping a suitable two
story fireproof building for this pur?
pose; nnd, in order that that depart?
ment may as soon as possible be again
placed In a condition for the proper
transaction of its business, it Is hoped
that Congress will promptly make the
necessary appropriation of eighty-five
thousand dollars for that purpose, and
will at the same lime make such ap?
propriation immediately available,- so
that work on the new building may be
begun at once.
As the department of construction
nnd repair at the Norfolk Yard em?
ploys more men than all the other de?
partments of the yard put together (Its
monthly payroll averaging $80,000), and
as ihe number of men It can efficiently
employ and the material it can effi?
ciently purchase and use are largely de?
pendent on its possession of the com
pleie fui ililies intended to be furnished
by the erection of the proposed build?
ing, it will he seen that the proposition
to have such a budding authorized and
erected at the earliest possible moment
Is one In which the cities of Norfolk
nnd Portsmouth, and In fact the whole
Stale of Virginia, are directly inter?
ested.
