Hodge Hall: Week 31 -- The view from my desk

The steel for the west side of the Hodge Hall expansion is going up quickly.
My office mates remark on a daily basis how fast the steel frame for the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion is going up. Sometimes it seems like the workers must have worked overnight, the change is so noticeable.

The ducts have arrived!

While still just a grid, really, the frame is a hive of activity during the day, with workers on every floor, welding, placing steel beams, putting down the decking. At lunch time, they all methodically navigate extension ladders from floor to floor.

But there was a small milestone this week -- the first load of ductwork arrived for the south side of the building. This is beginning to get real.
