Maybe those with experience in construction can explain this:

Why, when this building has several functioning interior elevators, are they still putting up the temporary ones on the exterior? Ease of access from the site?

This building is to remain occupied during construction.

Another reason is because once the current garage is demo'd an 18 story addition will replace it. This addition will consist of a 5 story automated garage and 13 story office floor plate addition.

How does this work with the building's occupancy? Are they moving people around? Can't imagine the whole building is empty

Has there been a similar in scale recladding project as this one anywhere in the city in the last 20-30 years? I can't think of any Boston skyscraper that has been reskinned in my lifetime but I am probably missing some.
