    Building 2 has had some dramatic progress this week. It has almost all of the roof sheeted with plywood and the plywood is almost completed felted. Exterior brick and interior work continues on building 1.

    Building 1 as seen from University Ave and Hebrard Blvd Intersection. This wall got bricked this past week. They are leaving the scaffolding up so the trim carpenters can install the roof trim.

    Building 1 as seen from the front steps of the Saucier clinic. This wall had no brick last week.

    Building 1 as seen from the Student Union Service Drive. Buchanan Hall is to the rear left,

    Building 1 as seen from East University. The opening on the first floor is a door. This door is about where the entrance to old Baker-Huger Hall was. Imagine old Baker-Huger stacked on top of each other with another wing almost as big (if not bigger) to the rear of it. These buildings are big.

    Manlift sunk to its axles. They must have believed the salesman. They will have a time getting out on Monday as it is raining right now and probably will continue through most of the night. It might be there a while.

    Not quite

    I had heard that from the old rose garden to the union there would be restaurants and coffee shops and little stores and a walk/path way effect which would accommodate all the dorm and neighborhood students for lite meals and snacks, drug store items and small grocery needs

    I just fell in love with the concept!!!

    We lucked out and got only a little over 2 inches of rain on Monday March 12 (as opposed to the 15 plus inches that Carencro got) so they were able to get almost a full week of work in. They shut down at 3:00 P.M. on Sunday and found myself locked out.

    This is building 1 from the University Ave Hebrard Blvd intersection. The Oak trees are getting new leaves and they are not as thick as usual.

    Building1-1

    Building 1 from the Saucier clinic front steps. the brick work is completed here. I guess another week or two and the brick work on this building will be finished.

    No photos this week. They are getting to the point of have more inside work than outside work so the visible progress was not that dramatic this week. A couple of days of rain kind of put the damper on things.

    Less rain this past week allowed for more outside work to be done.

    The usual starting point. University Ave facade of building 1 from Hebrard Blvd intersection. They started cleaning bricks at this corner and were working to McKinley street. the only exterior work left to do is caulking and a little painting.

    rose-1

    Building 1 from the steps of old Saucier clinic. They cut some trees down along Boucher so you can see the buildings better this week. Ironic that the trees were cut down the week the Arbor Day foundation placed the University on the "Tree Campus USA" list. Trees removed would have been to the left and right of this photograph.

    rose-2

    Alley way between the two new buildings as seen from the Student Union Service drive. Removed trees on left and right of drive allowed for a better view this week.

    rose-4

    Building 1 as seen from the front lawn of McLauren Gym. Again, a better view without the trees. Buchanan Hall is to the rear.

    rose-5


    Building 2 as seen from the front steps of Saucier Clinic. This is a view not seen before because of removed trees.

    University Ave facade of Building 1. The middle of the photo is the old drive to the front of old Bake-Huger. The door to building 1 is about where the entrance to old Baker-Huger was. The brick on this part of the building has been cleaned. This is pretty close to what the finished building will look like (plus landscaping of course)

    rose-9

    Cleaned brick on the right and soon to be cleaned brick on the left. The guy with the hard hat in the lower left is getting ready to go up in the man lift to start cleaning after a break for lunch.

    rose-8

    Randolph Hall. You can't see it but the upstairs is starting to get the partition walls installed.

    Randolph-1


    Windowless Harris Hall. They were working on the fire sprinkler system today. I guess you can see where they got the inspiration for the main entrance facade for the new residence halls.

    Harris-1

    I have always loved the architecture of Randolph and Harris halls. More so Harris as it looks like a classic college residence hall look.

    This is the view from the driveway to my home. You can just see the window holes in Randolph Hall through the lower branches of the oak tree to the left. The oak tress hide the huge new building behind. I am curious to see how the area changes when they occupy the buildings.

    I love that the new residence halls are taking their cue from Harris Hall.

    Recruiting in the academic world is about to get really fun. I pity the fool trying to get kids to go elsewhere. And when the Student Union is done.... And when Adjunct pay gets raised. OK, I got carried away.

    They never stop. Working on the University Ave facade of building 1 on Easter Sunday. Guy on malift closest to camera is cleaning up mortar splatter and other things around window openings. The guys in the other manlift are caulking and weather sealing around window openings. This side of building 1 is almost totally weather proofed.

    As much as I enjoy the photo documentation of progress, I have to say I'm looking forward to the day when they are finished as well.

    Maybe we can then start a couple of new ones......hmmmmmmmmm............maybe the new student union construction & the new baseball grandstand construction.

    I too, am looking forward to them being finished. It would be nice to have a little peace and quiet on the weekends. The almost constant sound of motion announciators is getting old. With at least two dozen pieces of equipment on the site and moving all the time it gets to a point that it's about the only thing you hear. I can't see how this can be a safety measure because if you hear them all the time then they are almost useless. I keep telling myself the more often they work the quicker they finish.

    My neighbor has two scarlet Macaws, one of them has learned to mimic the motion announciator sound so I guess the affects of construction will linger. It's OK though, because the bird does not do it all the time and it is kind of amusing.

    Student Union Construction is supposed to start sometimes this fall, so this thread could live on or morph into "Student Union Construction". Who knows.

    From the pics that you say are from your driveway I can tell what neighbor you're referring too. I would often ride my bike that way when I was going to and from class. Those dang Macaws would always scare the crap out of me when I would turn on Gordon. First time I went that way I thought there was someone yelling at me on the other side of the fence. They have great mimicking skills.

    When the birds act up when I have visitors I tell them that my neighbor beats his wife. LOL

    A little bit different view from the Hebrard University intersection. Part of building 1 is to the left and Randolph is to the right. The middle is the far end of building 1 (the end across from the old Saucier clinic). They are starting to clean up in the courtyard area. This will be the new rose garden.

    Getting harder to find exterior work being done on the project. They have until August to be finished (just a little over four months) They will make it with the first building for sure. They second building will be close. Renovation of Harris Hall and Randolph will also be close. They haven't done much on Buchanan Hall and I'm guessing they may be saving that for last in case they run out of money or it may not be a high priority.


    Cleaning up and installing drainage in the courtyard area behind building 1, Buchanan and Randolph halls. This will be the new Rose Garden area.

    They opened up a rear entry to Randolph Hall. You can see through it to the rear entrance to building 1. Looking closer and you can see through to building 2 beyond and then a little bit of Harris Hall through the opening to building 2.
