Hodge Hall: Week 17 -- The view from my desk

Workers with Gibraltar Construction continue to create footings
and tie rebar together for reinforcement grids. 

The storm we had this week slowed construction on the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center for about half a day or so -- it's not easy to pour cement in the rain.

The footings are well within the view from my desk now, as the construction workers have made it to the corner of the bulding. You can see cement mixer pouring cement into the form just past the giant hole where the elevator will go.

With more rain in the forecast, the depressions on the site that have filled with water likely will have to be pumped out before the footings can take shape on the Fee Lane side.
