    Google must have gotten new images of most of the whole area because the Ambassador extension is finally on there

    It is so cool to watch that thing eating away at the building. I watched for 10 - 15 minutes in the cold today. He knocked the floors so that they were kinda just hanging, then he went with that scissor looking tool and clipped all the rebar until the floor fell, then went on to the one below it. I took some pictures from a different angle (from Tulane St.) today. I was so close I was getting misted by the dust suppressor. I'll upload some of the cooler pictures once I get out of this class and get home.

    As far as the band, the director is going to be none too happy. I saw a stake in the ground between the parking tower and Angelle Hall that said "BLDG Corner Parking Garage." It was at about the 20 yrd line. There's no way the band will have a full football field to practice on. Normally, we didn't go that far out, except maybe the color guard, but when we learned pregame, that's where we came in from. We'd line up right in front of the Credit Union parking lot and run though it going towards Taft St. Unless he flip flops the field to learn pregame (has them come in from the Taft St. side, I don't know how he'll do it.

    The band will supposedly be left with a 90 yard practice field that will be completely redone and irrigated.

    I guess I'll have to see it to believe it. From what I remember, we didn't have a whole field as it was.

    And now, giving you exclusive coverage of the construction at UL, I give you an angle nobody has given you before... THE BACKSIDE!


    2-7-11


    Action shot. He knocked all the floors until they were hanging like that. Then he went with the snipper tool and Om nom nommed the rebar until the floor fell to the ground. (I was getting misted on my the dust suppressor back there wile taking pictures. Those things would be hella nice to have going during band practice in the 95 degree sun! haha)
    2-7-11 (12)


    To give you a sense of how big the parking garage will be. That stake had "BLDG CRNR P Garage" on it so I'd assume that's where the corner of the parking garage will be. This shot is looking at the back of Angelle Hall and looking toward McKinly St.

    This is just a cool picture IMO. Photography is kind of a hobby of mine (although I just have a point and shoot camera and can't afford to get a better, DSLR camera right now.), and I've been making a gallery on my Facebook of cool pictures, mostly around campus and Lafayette. (Here's my album on Facebook if you're interested. Anyone should be able to see it, even if you're not on FB.http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id...92&aid=2242790 )

    Work progress from January 2, 2011

    demo-1

    To today February 12, 2011 just six weeks later.

    work-on-2-12-11

    A tremendous effort by all involved. The contract is a joint effort by Lemoine and Juneau construction. The only thing you can say is that they are busting butt.

    Thanks.

    There is an exterior stair on the new parking garage that is four levels high. You can see the entire work site from there. With a zoom lens I can get pretty good close ups.

    It's pretty easy for me to understand whats going on being involved in construction since 1976. I know most of the local contractors on the site.

    Lol. Workers were able to bring down two immense dormitories in nearly 6 weeks, yet they're still renovating the clock tower above Stephen's Hall since the beginning of the Fall 2010 semester. Anyone know what they're doing with that? Just giving it a face-lift, or are they planning to get the clock working again?

    Dr. Savoie wrote a blog a few days ago about all the construction going on around campus. He said the bell tower was almost fully functional again.
