Hodge Hall: Week 32 -- The view from my desk

It has been really quiet here with the students gone for Winter Break. But even though there's no activity in the classrooms until January, there will be plenty of it in the hallways.

Construction workers on Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center are taking advantage of the decrease in foot traffic to remove those old orange Spanish-style tiles in the hallways as part of the interior renovation. You know the ones -- they make it impossible to quietly roll a cart or a chair past the classrooms.

The goal is to remove the tile from all four floors in the south section of the building before the students return for class Jan. 7, leaving bare, but smooth, concrete.

During the summer months when there are fewer students here, the crew will start installing a terrazzo-type floor similar to what's under your feet when you're standing in Kelley's Hall of Honor.

Outside this week, workers have continued on the steel frame on the Fee Lane side.

I'll be out for a few weeks for break, so it will be fun to see the progress when I get back. Look for the first update of 2013 on Jan 11. Happy holidays, everyone!
