    I went and took some pictures today of the construction. Its amazing, its like the parking tower is a big, real life Lego set. They lift a section, put it in place, attach it, then move on to the next one, everything has a specific place and locks in to the other pieces. Being a fan of Legos when I was a kid, it's really cool to watch.




    Some more pictures I took today of the construction:

    It looks like the new one's going to be bigger, taller, and like the parking tower downtown. What I mean, is that it looks like the floors will be level and there will be up and down ramps, instead of the parking space itself being slanted to get up and down like the one there already.

    Baker Dorm as of 5/08/11. Looks like they have the first few courses of brick around a good part of the building and will start brick work in earnest this week.

    Parking Garage as of 5/08/11. This will be a very imposing building. some may not like it because it will be out of proportion to other buildings on campus.

    You are not kidding. It's already kind of imposing in this picture.

    Today I noticed that they are in the process of removing all the Air Conditioner units and some furniture from old Baker and Huger halls. I guess they are pretty confident that the new Baker Hall will be finished for the Fall semester.

    Big boss says August. Just need a few more weeks of good weather and it will be about all inside for this one. One big dorm. And more coming. Parking garage will help a great deal - depending on cost!! Impressed with construction crew. Getting after it. Seems well coordinated.

    Demolition of Huger, Baker, Bonin and Evageline should start soon.

    The stump to the right was an Oak tree that was over 50 years old. Funny how they take these trees down when school is out. This is one they said they were going to move.

    Brick layer foreman to the left. they were setting precast concrete sections on the wall. Note the two story poles attached by "C" clamps on the walls. Story poles are used to make sure you end where you started.

    One of the Mc Kinley street entrances. I was hoping they would have an arch somewhere on this building as there is an arch on almost all of the buildings on campus.
