    The only thing they have left to do is to install lights along the sidewalk along the front and side of the building.
    That is an excellent comparison photo and really impresses me with how great the new dorm looks!

    Thanks for your tremendous efforts Helmut!

    Thanks Helmut. In the early 80's I had an apartment on Taft between Denbo & University. Your pictures have been a great reminder of the times spent there. As someone who only gets by campus during the football season now, it has been a great way to stay informed. Once again, thanks for your time & effort.

    I got my "La Louisiane" in the mail this morning. It has several articles about all the construction on campus including the Student Union renovation. Really good and informative.

    At a STATE FARM reception for incoming students outside of new dorm, I talked to a employee from the company handling the new dorm---I told him of the juxtaposition photo and that he could find it on R-Pagin---He was most anxious to check it out!!!!

    No problem, I kind of prefer being in the background. If you click on the photo in Ragin Pagin thread it should take you directly to the fliker photo stream. I have used two photo streams because they limit you to 200 photos before they start charging a fee. The photos are not restricted and anybody can use them at any time. So help yourself.

    I have met the General Superintendent for the project and gave him 3 CD's worth of photos from Jan 2 to August 6. If you see the guy again tell him to check with Troy.

    Yes new Huger is progressing rapidly. I have found it difficult to capture because (up until today) I couldn't get far enough away to capture the scope of work because other buildings or trees were in the way. However, today that has changed as you will see.

    Lots and lots of stuff to show today. Since the new Parking garage is partially open to the public I was able to get better camera angles on new Huger and New Baker dorms.

    New Baker dorm as seen from the new Parking garage. A very very nice building.

    New Baker as seen from Taft Street. A curious mixture of construction workers, students and parents of students.

    Facade of New Baker dorm facing Hamilton Hall. Landscaping being put in . Another curious mixture of construction equipment, storage yard and student bikes. It's kind of surreal in many ways although you can feel that it will be a very nice space once the construction is finished.

    The new band practice field. The recent rains have given it renewed vigor and the grass is taking hold nicely.

    New Huger hall is progressing at a rapid rate. Here are a few photos taken today August 20, 2011

    Another view of new Huger Hall from the new parking garage. New Baker roof is in foreground. The amount of roof structure gives you an appreciation of haw large the buildings are. However, the photgraph does not do it justice. You have to be there to really take it all in.

    Demolition of Rose Garden dorms has started.

    Evangeline Hall was leveled today in about an hour. Here are two views of what is left.

    evangeline-demo-1

    evangeline-demo-2

    Demolition of Baker Dorm was started but they uncovered some steel beams covered with fireproofing material. They stopped until they could run a test to see if it contained Asbestos. (It probably does).

    baker-demo-2

    baker-demo-1

    The steel with the potential ACM is the horizontal member to the left of the top of what was a stair well. This is one of the Hays Town dorms that caused the fuss in the paper last week. There is nothing extraordinary about these buildings. Once all the landscaping is removed the buildings look like they were from his Auschwitz period (LOL). If they had not found the potential ACM this building would have been leveled today also.

    Meant to say this earlier but I just got home after 2 weeks of working in Ohio. Know that the pictures were greatly appreciated while I was up there.

    I finally got a chance to drive by the other day and it really was impressive in person. The new dorms are large, well done, and they fit in well with the rest of campus. And the parking garage is well hidden behind the massive oaks and not overly imposing. It looks great and will continue to look great for years to come.

    Looks like asbestos has put the brakes on demolition of the rose Garden dorms.

    Evangeline Hall debris pile getting smaller.

    evangeline-debris

    Exploratory demolition of Bonin Hall. Might be looking for more asbestos or looking at the structure to determine demolition method.

    bonin-1

    Exploratory demolition of old Baker hall. Could be looking for more asbestos.

    Almost finished renovated front of OK Allen Hall. The brick work to he left is for a planter that hides a handicapped ramp. This building will house Student health services and counseling and testing. Two services that are currently in building scheduled for demolition for the Student Union renovation.

    Tropical Storm Lee dropped 8.5 inches of rain on the site from Friday to Sunday. These are a few photos taken on Monday September 5, 2011. Looks like Asbestos has demolition ground to a halt. Maybe we will see some progress this coming week.

    This is the remains of Evangeline Hall. Buchanan Hall is to the rear Bonin Hall is to the right. Harris hall is to the rear of the camera.

    These photos were taken from the fire escape on Harris Hall. I'm thinking this will be a good viewpoint to show weekly progress.
