I have started to take photos on a weekly basis starting last weekend to chronicle the demolition of the Credit union building and Denbo and Bancroft halls. (I have not been able to figure out how to post photos on this site or I would post them here) (I have posted the first photos on the Hamilton Laboratory group in Facebook) The Credit Union building is in a pile as of today. Denbo and Bancroft are slowly losing their facade. Lemoine Company is the general contractor. G H Griffin is the Demolition subcontractor (The same contractor that Demolished Voorhies and the other dorm several years ago). Van Champagne with Lemoine said they were looking into imploding Denbo and Bancroft. I don't think that will happen given that they are so close to Hamilton Hall and the houses righ across Tulane avenue are pretty close too.
They have finished the Geopiles on the dorm being built on the old parking lot area. They have started installation of the mechanical lines for that building today. (If work keeps up at this pace they will be finished before the Softball stadium).
Four oak tress and one sycamore tree were cut down the week before Christmas.
They have redesigned the new dorm to be built where Bonin Hall is now to save the Oak trees at the corner of University and McKinley. They will start to "Root prune" the oak tree near Buchanan hall in an attempt to move it early next year.
