|The exterior concrete block on the west side of the expansion should be completed early next week.|
And just like that, the concrete block has been installed all the way up past the third floor of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center expansion.
It's amazing how fast the masons work, very methodical and efficient. That phase of the work should be done early next week.
Inside the existing building, the crew has been working to get the hallways done and the bathrooms renovated before students return for the fall semester. Gregg Rinnert, site manager for The Skillman Corporation, said the terrazzo floors have been poured, and they will start polishing them next week after the walls have been painted.
They've also started installing the bathroom fixtures in the new bathrooms.
The masons continue to install limestone on the east side, and have started framing the windows with limestone on the 10th Street side.
