    It is so wonderful being able to see photos of what is happening on campus. Thank you for the record of the construction that you are keeping. I like it when I see that you have a post on the construction.

    Front columns of Huger Hall being installed. They come split in half and they are bonded together on site. The middle two columns have straps around them to hold it together until the adhesive sets.

    A spare or broken column half. Capitols and bases are to the rear.

    Finishing touches being done to the rear of Huger Hall. Scheduled to be finished around Thanksgiving.

    We will see if they were able to improve on the installation of the AC lines over the installation behind Baker.

    Thank you very much. Being that my house is right across the street it's really not that hard to do. I started out photgraphing on Saturdays but since they have moved to the Rose Garden area I'm thinking I will have to photograph on Sunday as i will have to sneak in and the best day to do that is when they are not working that much. At first they were working seven days a week but lately they are taking Sunday off.

    Just an idea ---How about having some photo shop give a beautiful album that you can give the history to the university and the company doing the work---The price will be a huge contribution to RCAF---Top level only will get the album!!! What say you????

    Once a month, I drop off a copy of all the photos (the not so good, the bad and the ugly) to Dr. Savoie, Troy Dunnam (the general superintendent) and Steve Oubre. What they do with them after that I don't know.

    The general contractor knows somebody with a plane that they regularly fly to Houston. They make a swing over the campus and take some really nice aerial shots.

    They have used the parking lot behind Hamilton Hall as a storage area and there is very little material there now. In two weeks it will all be gone.

    The Rose Garden construction continues to progress.

    Foreground is concrete slab placed early morning of Friday 11/11/11. They are wrecking forms on this area and getting ready to place concrete in the area in the background.

    First residence hall in background. They are working to place concrete on the third section probably early this coming week. The foreground is foundation prep work for the second residence hall. The white circles in the ground are the tops of compacted sand Geopiles installed by the equipment to the left of the photo.

    A day late due to ISP problems.

    Huger is getting very close to being finished. This is a view from Tulane Ave while standing in the service drive between Huger and Hamilton.

    huger-1

    A view from the Taft Tulane intersection.

    huger-2

    A view between Huger and Baker with Hamilton to the rear. It looks like it will be a very nice space.

    huger3

    The rear of Baker Hall. Looks like they will have room for benches and other things. There is very little material stored in the parking lot behind Hamilton Hall. They were shooting to be finished for Thanksgiving but I don't think they will make it. I give them two weeks, give or take a day or two.

    A panoramic view of the Rose Garden construction. All of the concrete slab for the first hall is finished and they have started the first floor framing. They are continuing to do foundation and stair well/elevator shaft work for the second hall.

    rose-pano

    Tying rebar steel for foundation of second Rose Garden Hall. Rain expected on Tuesday (11/22) so they were working on Sunday.

    rose-1

    Close up of corner nearest Randolph Hall. Randolph Hall is to the rear of the camera.

    OOPS. Somebody made a mistake. They had to scab on a bit of concrete to make the building fit the foundation. This is the corner closest to Randolph Hall.

    rose3


    View of future alley between the two new residence halls.

    I saw my neighbor yesterday afternoon and he said as soon as the residence halls are finished they will start on the Student Union renovation. This may be the longest thread in Ragin Pagin history.

    Rain Tuesday 11/22 along with Thanksgiving and rain again on 11/26 rsults in not much work this past week. There was no work from Thanksgiving to today Sunday 11/27. I think that is the first time since construction began that there has been a suspension of work for that long. Today Sunday 11/27 there was one guy on the site running pumps to dewater excavations so they could work tomorrow. It was kind of nice to have some quite time in the area.

    This is a composite photo of the first Rose Garden Residence hall. There is a large pile of prefabricated truss joists in the left foreground. It will be a while before they need these because the interior walls are not framed yet. Maybe by the end of this coming week if they get good weather.

    rose-2

    Composite photo of the second Rose Garden residence hall. Pretty muddy from an all day rain on Saturday.

    rose-1

    Foundation for a stairwell for the second Rose Garden residence hall. Water in the excavation to the rear was being pumped out today.

    rose-3

    Composite photo of the view from Boucher Street at the Student Union service driveway. The middle is the future alley way between the two new buildings. to the left is Buchanan Hall to the right is Harris Hall. The water in the street to the right of the red pickup truck is from pumps being used to dewater the site.

    Not much to show around Baker-Huger due to rains and holidays.

    Plenty of mud between Baker Huger. Baker to the right. Huger to the left.

    Light poles waiting to be installed.

    Parking lot behind Hamilton Hall almost cleared of construction materials.

    A hidden patio behind Burke-Hawthorne Hall. Burke theater is to the right. The new addition is to the left. It is very nice and the casual campus visitor will never find it.

    burke-hawth-patio

    The recent rains have caused the resurrection ferns to resurrect. There are MILLIONS of acorns on campus. I'm thinking there will be a squirrel population boom.
