UPDATE 4:50 p.m. – Engineers have confirmed there are cracks in one of the beams holding up the ceiling over PLU’s university pool.
The Pacific Lutheran administration evacuated the university pool this morning following reports of cracks in the building's ceiling.
Structural engineers investigated and confirmed the damage, he said.
A contractor has delivered scaffolding to the building and will use this to support the damaged beam prior to repair, Brewis said.
Because the roof was covered with snow today, Central Pierce Fire and Rescue helped remove it by blowing water on the roof until about 4 p.m.
“They kind of treated it as a training exercise,” Brewis said.
Nobody has been injured.
