There is a 12" x 12" hardwood beam that runs on the inside perimeter of the Cathedral walls. Where this beam passes under the doors at the three entrances to the Cathedral, it has disintegrated. This is due to their exposure to water because they are intact everywhere else . We are therefore replacing them with steel reinforced concrete beams at the door entrances only.
The remanents of the perimeter beam are shown above, right where it passes under the door sills of the South entrance.
The placing of the steel reinforcement is shown above. The men are standing next to the metal decking where the new aisles will be poured.
