Lots and lots of work today, February 6, 2011. They had the light towers on last night and were working on Dorm No. 1 foundation.
Clock wise from left, Auger for auger cast piles, Foundation pad for Dorm No. 1 almost ready for rebar, Dust suppressor, Bancroft demolition, more plumbing and foundation work for dorm no. 1, and in the middle on the bottom, carpenters preparing form work.
Dust suppressor, If it's not raining they use this to help with the dust, Yesterday there was a dust cloud over University Ave almost all afternoon.
Rebar recycling, almost all the metal, concrete and brick will be recycled. This is where much of the profit is in demolition.
BFDBH at work, if they had more room to work, these two buildings would have been demolished in a little over a week. Once they get Bancroft down then they will have much more room to work.
BFDBH getting ready to take another row of columns down.
BFDBH finished taking out columns, It took about 10 minutes from the previous photo. Right after I took this photo he pulled the columns out below.
Test pile for the Auger Cast piling for the Parking garage.
