Hodge Hall: Week 51 -- The view from my desk

Most of the slate tile has been added, and the cement block is halfway up the tower. 

The concrete risers for the ground-floor
classroom create a cool pattern as seen
from The Bridge over Fee Lane.

The crew members on the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center construction team are moving on up.

The entry tower stairs are finished, and the cement has been poured into the bed of each pan step. They'll later be covered in stone tile.

The curved concrete risers for the two theater-style classrooms on the ground floor are now finished. It makes a cool pattern now, but a wall will soon go up in the middle to divide the space.

The concrete block is on the way up on the outside of the Fee Lane side of the building's tower. Only that section is being worked on right now, but if the front of the building is any indication, it won't be long until the  entire exterior wall is up on the west side of the project.

And at the very top, the crew has been working on the slate roof. Not sure I'd be brave enough to tackle that job. It's pretty high up. They work in teams, though, and are tied to the building in case they slip.
