This week work began removing the burned out remains of the paint shop at Treu Body Works on North Kickapoo in Lincoln. The building was destroyed by fire earlier this year. According to owner Ray Treuhart, Goodman Excavation was tasked with removing the building and also the concrete floor. Treuhart said that the intense heat of the fire damaged the concrete to the point that it will "scale off" and deteriorate rapidly, so it too will have to be replaced.

Treuhart anticipates beginning construction on the new building in early September. The new site will be larger than the building lost, Treu Body Works and will include amenities that the old structure didn't have.
