    Ever seen a concession stand under a stadium/ bleachers? It will look like that




    Hopefully this allows the cox building to be blown up sooner than later

    And maybe can be converted to concessions and/or restrooms or maybe a visitors dressing room which would move us up a notch I would think.

    Yep, this space can be repurposed many different ways once the new clubhouse is built

    It won't be just sitting there as a relic

    The building inside the building becomes a room. All you have to do is walk over to cajun field and see the concession area as a building in a building. Or go to the Cajun dome and you will see the ticket offices as a separate building use in the structure. This is even more obvious now in that the dome is being totally renovated and when you go to the ticket office you don't see any evidence that the dome is being worked on.

    Go to any high school football stadium and you will see rest rooms built under the stands. You could demolish the stands and have rest rooms or demolish the rest rooms and still have the stands.

    Technically what we will have at Tigue Moore is what is called a "mixed use" structure. Nothing really unusual about it.

    Precast concrete walls are going up at Southside High. Most of the Lemoine subs should be heading to the Tigue.

    Looking at the forms they are placing it seems to encompass a large area with plumbing/electrical risers but seems to have a large amounts of loose dirt. Is this going to be covered over or is there additional work needed before the pour can happen? Or is the loose dirt in the view not in the area of the pour?

    They are forming up and placing rebar for footings. Once the concrete for the footings is placed then I suspect they will come back and place a slab over the areas between the footings. The footing is what the building is place upon while the slab is basically a floor. This is very common construction technique in commercial construction.

    I would hope that they would move the camera a little further away because, once they start erection the structure the only thing we will see is the wall that is going to be atop the footing immediately in front of the camera.

    So all the current forming is for footings? I just thought all the non-packed dirt looked odd in between all the areas awaiting a concrete pour. I'm also curious about how deep the footings might be for a structure of this size. From the view it looks like about 3'.

    The footings connect pile caps and are used to transfer loads to the deep foundation. I THINK they placed auger cast piles that were about 40 or 50 feet deep.

    I have actually been impressed with the amount of workers lately and how much progress theyve made the past two weeks.

    The camera could have been placed on one of the outfield lights and have a pan right to left and focus in and out like they had for the APC.....

    So piles would have been driven earlier and the existing concrete pour will secure the new footings to the existing piles? Would this have been from the original stadium as I haven't seen any machines in any of the photos recently to indicate this was done once the old stadium structure was removed?

    I saw some spiral tied rebar cages that were about 40 feet long stored on site. That is typically reinforcing for a drilled concrete shaft. I am assuming that is what they were for. I have no inside information on this though.

    The lens on the camera is a wide angle lens. What we are seeing is distorted.
