Hodge Hall: Week 25 -- The view from my desk

Ready for steel: The limestone has been removed and the foundation has been packed with stone.
The crane and aerial lift on the Fee Lane side of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center are gone from the construction site, but not before the workers removed more limestone from the building.

The two vertical sections on the lower part of the building were cleared of stone to make it easier to add wheelchair lifts to tiered classrooms there.

The "floor" of the building is smoothed and ready for conduit before the cement is poured, and more crushed stone was brought in for backfill in various areas of the site.

Exciting to see the crane on the 10th Street side come into view as the steel work progresses.
