Hodge Hall: Week 47 -- The view from my desk

We've all been ready for spring, and the Hodge Hall crew made the most of warmer weather this week.


Spring has sprung in Bloomington. At last. It was warm enough this week for workers at the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center to spread some cement  and mortar.
Crews work fast spreading the wet cement.

The concrete slab pour for the ground floor was fun to watch as the cement pumper angled it's spider-like arm between the steel beams and the crew worked fast to spread and smooth the cement.

On the other side of the building, workers seemed to be making quick work on the exterior concrete block walls. The hydraulic scaffold has edged its way to the front right corner of the expansion.

It was also warm enough to finish spraying the fireproofing material on the remainder of the steel beams.

We'll be seeing a lot more activity in the coming weeks!
