Work resumes on Trust Building


Danny Joyner, of TNT Demolition of Kansas City, sits on a ledge created in the north wall of the Trust Co. Building on Ohio Avenue as he removes a section of bricks Monday morning. Joyner said the wall consists of three layers of bricks covered by stucco. The removal of the upper three walls of the building is the beginning of Phase II of the stabilization project. Joyner said the work is expected to take two to three weeks to complete. Joyner was quick to add that this is planned demolition and is being done to preserve the historic structure, not demolish it.


The northwest corner of the Sedalia Trust Building is pictured Monday morning. Workers from TNT Demolition Co. of Kansas City have been at the site since April 27 to remove the north brick wall of the historic building. Workers will only remove the top three floors of the bricks because the ground floor has a shared wall with the adjoining building.


Donny Joyner stands on a portion of the north wall of the historic downtown Sedalia Trust Building Monday morning as he removes three layers of brick that comprise the wall. Joyner said the wall is almost a foot wide. Joyner and four other employees of TNT Demolition of Kansas City worked carefully to remove the bricks. The building shares an outer wall with the adjoining building and allowing the bricks to fall to the outside of the Trust Building may cause damage to the roof of the neighboring building.


The ceiling beams are exposed on the interior lower level of the Sedalia Trust Building Monday morning. A new interior wall has been constructed in the building making it possible for the outer brick wall to be removed as part of Phase II of the stabilization project to save the building. Danny Joyner of TNT Demolition Co., said the interior of the building needed a lot of work and had suffered fire and water damage but the building was beautiful and needed to be preserved.


Danny Joyner is dwarfed Monday morning by the size of the north wall of the Sedalia Trust Building on Ohio Avenue as he works to remove bricks from the outer wall. In a press release provided to the Democrat, Friends of the Sedalia Trust stressed to the public that the work so far has stabilized the building and the demolition phase can be done safely and will serve in the preservation of the historic landmark.
