Hodge Hall: Week 15 -- The view from my desk

Workers tie rebar into grids to be used for the footings that will anchor steel beams for Hodge Hall.

Workers for Gibraltar Construction are making their way around the outside of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center, beginning on the 10th Street side, making rebar grids and pouring cement into them to create reinforced concrete footings.

The footings will anchor steel beams that will create the framework for the Hodge Hall expansion. I've seen the cement truck go back and forth many times, but haven't gotten to see its handiwork yet. Hoping they'll round the corner next week so we can see a little more action.

This part of the job should move pretty fast. The concrete work is expected to be finished by Sept. 21.
