    Frenchie, Ruston won't be making fun of anything. Their new football locker room is a maze with all the columns in it. There's more, these are just the only 2 pics I took....
    Looks like the laundry room for the most part.

What I do know is they had originally projected completion of the demolition at the end of June and from what I can tell they finished demolition in the first week of August. That puts them about 5 weeks behind the original time line. What I don't know is what affect the rains in August had on the work schedule. I suspect at least a week but that's a guess.
    It rained in August? You sure?

    They quit working after the pour or because there's a football game tonight at 7:00 PM?

    I'd guess they poured all of the footings and would have to wait for them to cure which may take a couple of days. Helmut?

    They will probably wreck the forms tomorrow and move them over to the next section.

    Does concrete of that size cure that quickly?

    Its not fully cured but its far enough along to remove forms. Some large concrete pours don't "fully" cure for years.

    It's no problem. They just need to be careful around it for a few days. Most curbing and paving is done by "slip form" method. That is with no forms. It is high early strength and close to zero slump. Concrete pipe is made with zero slump concrete. It's all good, believe me.

    In other words, no worries........looks good to me. Let's continue with the next pour.

    They are backfilling between the footings now. They have moved the forms to the right of the camera and will be doing footings in that area. We will not be able to see what they are doing because of the way the camera is set up. The next thing to do directly in front of the camera is the Slab on Grade. This will happen after the finish with the footings to the right of the camera screen. When the finish with the slab on grade I will be able to get an idea of they schedule.

    Looks like they are finishing up with the backfill of the footings placed this week and are moving on to the section to camera right.

    Got a little more info. The stadium will be structural steel supports with pre-cast concrete. I'm not positive but reading between the lines I think it might be a hybrid system by Dant-Clayton. It has been used extensively in other projects. This should allow for a quicker buildout over an all cast in place build. Steel should start going up in approximately two weeks if the weather holds and no issues arise with the SOG. Once steel goes up I think they are going to try and get a better idea on the true timeline.

    I figured as much by looking at the timeline previously made available. I just need a hard point on the ground to get a fix on where we are in the process.
