    New Baker Hall on July 9, 2011. They are cleaning up the storage yard and hauling out the limestone they used to stabilize the site. They are forming up for a sidewalk along the front of the building. Finally getting to see what the finished product might look like

    I love that they're trying to keep the same architectural styles as the older buildings on campus. Griffin and Wharton do the job, but they just don't look nearly as nice.

    Somebody somewhere Somehow mentioned that where these buildings had been would be a Village concept going from the new dorms to the student Center

    -This would make me think about finishing up and getting a phd in anything---Can you live in the dorms and not be a student---What a retirement idea!!!!

    There would be a waiting list for sure.

    On a brighter though dire note; New dorms would be available on a fairly regular basis.

    Band director said the band field is going to be put in next week, giving the new grass about a month to take hold before band camps starts.

    The reverb is going to be HORRIBLE. I kinda feel bad for the students living in the dorm facing the field, as the band faces that way and not the parking tower.

    They still haven't started with the demolition of the old dorms along University. The only dorm that still has electric power is Bonin. I suspect that once they de-energize Bonin it won't be long.

    They are taking a little bit different course of construction on new Huger. I guess they learned things on Baker and are able to speed things up a little bit. New Huger is about where new Baker was in May.

    New Baker on July 16, 2011. The roof vents along the top are being stored on the roof. the ones along the bottom (in a straight line) are installed.

    Placing concrete for a sidewalk along the front of New Baker hall. the three boxes at the rear of the transit mix truck are visqueen. They needed it about 30 minutes later as it started to rain.

    Stored Landscape materials by the parking garage. New concrete paving on the first level of the parking garage. I would suspect that they will be able to drive up and down the parking garage pretty soon.

    New location for Band directors stand against the Taft Street parking garage. Looks like the band will reverse it's practice field from what it was before.

    This is awesome. Can't wait to see what it looks like finished. I'm also glad to see Corona/Guillory/etc. will be gone very soon. Eyesores.

    What's the status on the union renovation/expansion?

    I read in some article from the Advocate that Corona and the other Ugly one, may be put on hold I believe they are having some trouble finding space for the offices.

    So instead they will focus on starting remolding the inside of the union.


    Will the cafeteria have to be moved for renovation? If so where will they move it too?

    Health Services and other services that are in Guilllory and Corona to move will move to OK Allen once it's renovated. Renovation of OK allen was funded by Student Union funds. OK Allen was in pretty good shape considering it was almost 100 years old. It had started as and "L" shaped building had an addition to make it a "T" shaped building then two more additions to the rear (to the quad). There was some rot found on the roof and all of the roof trim had to be removed due to rot. It still had the Kitchen area in tact but no equipment.

    I would suspect that things would get going after OK Allen is renovated. There is an energy efficiency project going on now that is upgrading the cooling tower and chilled water loop that is supplied by the existing Student Union cooling tower and mechanical system. I would guess that is in anticipation of the renovation but I'm not 100% sure of that. I am not involved in the Student Union Renovation project (other than OK Allen) so I don't know particulars.

    Is the area for the band to practice any smaller than prior to the new construction? If so, will the area be large enough for the band to actually practice formations at its current size and/or at 300+ strong?

    Normally I'm not a stickler for spelling but this is hilarious. "Remolding". I'm sure the Union has plenty of mold already. But, I'm sure they could always stand to remove it all and apply a fresh coat of mold.

    Lol well deserved, they can recycle the mold from the older dorms. Maybe Stokes?

    It's about the same size (20 to 20). It should be fine.

    Still removing asbestos from old dorms along University Ave. They have returned to Evangeline Hall for more asbestos removal. Looks like they must have found some more. The crawl space under Bonin Hall is sealed off. That must be a hell of a job removing asbestos under that building.

    Were the old dorms supposed to be torn down before the end of the summer?

    I think so but it looks like they are finding more Asbestos in the buildings and it is taking a long time. It won't take long to demolish them once they get started, debris removal will be the limiting factor.

    More asbestos removal in Evangeline Hall. This is the building they started with asbestos removal and they have returned to it. Looks like they are back in old Baker and Huger too. They have never left Bonin once they started. Asbestos removal is a slow and tedious job that requires meticulous record keeping.

    evangeline-asbestos

    New Baker Hall on July 30, 2011. They moved in furniture last week, they are installing gutters and the entry columns, landscaping is started too. The landscape sprinkler system is being installed on the band practice field. Sprinkler heads are marked by a white pipe (like the one to the right of the dozer). Landscape sprinklers are being installed around New Baker Hall too.

    McKinley Street entrance to parking garage next to Angelle Hall. I wonder if anybody is going to have anything to say about the color of the brick not matching? The darker brick was placed on site. It appears that the lighter brick is not brick but stained concrete (I have not been able to get close enough to see.)

    Energy efficiency project is under construction. There will be new cooling towers at the Student Union and Doucet Hall with improvements to the chilled water loop at the student union. One of the new cooling towers is to the left rear.

    The flying cantilever is the only example of anything of value on the soon to be demolished Guillory Hall. These buildings were built in 1955 and are the worst eyesore on campus.
