Hodge Hall: Week 57 - The view from my desk

The storms bypassed us this week, which made it easier for the masons to work on the concrete block.

We've watched this week as the scaffold climbed higher day by day outside of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion. Some bad storms that were supposed to hit Monroe County midweek ended up skirting us, and by the end of the week, the masons had finished laying the concrete block wall for the first floor of the expansion.

I was glad to see windows on this side of the building. The theater-style classrooms on the other side of that concrete block often are in rooms with solid brick walls.

Installing the limestone veneer is like putting a big puzzle together.
On the other side of Hodge Hall, the masons continued installing the limestone veneer. Gregg Rinnert, site manager for The Skillman Corporation, shared some photos with us of the beginnings of that exciting phase of the construction.

Looking collegiate: The first window to be blocked in.
