Restaurant reopens after ceiling problem

  • Dec. 4, 2006 7:00 a.m.

The restaurant at the Sandspit Airport Inn was closed for six days last week after part of the ceiling in the kitchen collapsed. Manager Fred Green said the ceiling over the prep table fell down Tuesday afternoon (Nov. 28). There were some workers in the kitchen at the time but they all got out and no one was injured, he said. Only a portion of the ceiling collapsed, he said – an area he estimated at about six feet by eight feet. The collapse was caused by leaking water. A water line above the ceiling froze during last week’s cold snap, then thawed and started leaking onto the drywall. The owner of the inn flew in workers from Alberta who fixed the leak and repaired the drywall, Mr. Green said, due to the shortage of available local contractors. They completed the work in short order and the restaurant opened again on Monday (Dec. 4).
