We will be able to see how far ahead or behind schedule they are at the completion of the pile caps. I need to go back and see when the demolition was complete.
    My bad, they are doing the Slab on Grade (SOG) work now not pile caps. The SOG was to have been finished on September 13 or 76 days after June 30 (the date of completion of demolition). After review of previous posts it looks like demolition of the stadium was completed in the first week of August or about 4 to 5 weeks behind the original schedule. We will know more when the Slab on grade is completed.

    Obama care has numerous requirements for employers and employees but full time for Obama Care is 30 hours per week. No bearing on this project.

    Boomer thinks Obama causes everything bad in the US, and especially at UL. He's not too far off.

    I passed by the stadium today and it looks like, in my opinion, they are about 50% completed with the slab on grade work. I can get a better I idea on the schedule once they finish this phase. I can calculate the days between the first of August and completion of the slab versus the number of days on the schedule.

    So that means that we will be playing about the last half of the season at the Tigue. The home games that is. Wonder how they will calculate the price of season tickets. They can't even put out a schedule yet not knowing the completion date. This will be a fiasco this season.

    I don't really know about how much of the season will be lost. The only think I can tell you is my opinion of where they are relative to the time line that was provided back in June. A time line that may or may not be the same.

    As far as the fiasco, i suspect it probably will be and there will be plenty of unhappy people.

    Think Brexit. They never saw it coming. The MSM doesn't even hide it anymore.

    Question: Do you think that this construction is much more involved than the end-zone and concessions at cajun field? I was at cajun field just about every other day taking pictures and talking to some workers. The demo of the Tigue was equivalent to the ground work on the end-zone. Which I think took more time to do than the demo of the Tigue. Digging the two cement barriers, or whatever you call it, and forming them for cement took time. They formed and poured one seating section per day. Then you have the concession and restroom construction.....knowing all this, which is a bigger job in your opinion?

    They better put in 24 hour days, now. Our resident engineer doesnt believe we have much of a shot before possibly April.

    Is Helmut the 'resident engineer?' I don't think I've seen a definitive date from him, although right above he says he's not sure how much of the season will be lost.

    I'd be willing to bet that owner 1/3 our home games won't be played in Tigue Moore. Then Scott Farmer will blame Lemoine.

    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....

    The only reason I am not sure is because I don't know exactly where they are on the time line. Once they finish with the slab on grade that will give me a hard point and then I can compare that point with the same point on original time line. 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.

    Understood....but that's my point: we certainly all agree that there was a significant delay, but we really don't have a firm grasp yet of how delayed we are. And I for one will believe you, once you are able to make that projection.
