    I figured that was the stairwell being constructed, but wasn't 100%. What do you mean by CMU stairwell?

    Work being done today February 26, 2011. Clockwise from left. Framing on the north end of Taft Dorm, more debris removal from Bancroft/Denbo, Beginning of framing at south end of Taft street dorm and Elevator shaft and Stairwell in middle of Taft Street dorm. Truck loads of material on site.

    overview

    Close up of framing work and completed stairwell. Metal stud framing at perimeter walls and wood stud framing on interior walls. You can see the first floor slab of Bancroft to the rear. Not much Bancroft Debris left but still a big pile of Denbo.

    Close up of Middle stairwell and elevator shaft. They closed in the pull gaps for the post tension slab today the gray stripe through the slab on both sides of the elevator shaft)

    taft2

    Beginning of framing and CMU work for stair well at north end of Taft Street dorm.

    taft3

    Getting close to topping out the elevator shaft. Denbo debris is in background.

    elevator-shaft

    They really need to get busy. They are running out of room to work with so much building material on site. They have at least two guys with fork lifts and other machines to clean up construction debris. If they didn't they would run out of room. Once the demolition debris is removed I'm thinking they will have more room to work.

    Parking garage work on February 26, 2011. Auger Cast rig in foreground, concrete trucks backed up to concrete pump, dirt pile to left is generated material from augering operation. White lines in the back appear to be layout for footings.

    Getting ready to place a battered (inclined) pile. Looks to be about 10 to 15 degrees. Auger is advanced into the ground. As they remove the auger, concrete is pumped through a hollow shaft in the auger to fill the hole.

    The advance the cage to a predetermined depth and they tie it off until the concrete sets. They are placing several piles in a group at each location. They will tie them together with a pile cap later.

    That'd be an expense they probably don't care to incur, plus it's cemented into place. Also, some friends and I did some "exploring" tonight and the lunch table is on the slab under the tower. If they take that out, where would they eat lunch!? haha

    I really appreciate Helmet's pictures and construction explanations.

    As for the band platform, I believe the construction crew breaks out their horns and drums during lunch and prepares for next football season... if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't know but if "the workers" "on the lam" had worked half as fast as these guys, the Lady Cajuns would have played in a new stadium during the season ... last year.

    I saw Coach Hud eating lunch with the construction crew under the band stand, and prepping them to be the best at what they do. It was quite inspiring....wait wrong thread!

    Watch your feet when you "explore" or you might wind up in a hole you can't get out of. A construction site is a foreign place to the uninitiated, there are things on the site that are more dangerous then they look.

    Thanks, I was wondering if there was any interest and if I should continue to update.

    I think there is a survey control point in the area of the band platform that they do not want to disturb.

    Lamson Park will not be finished by March 15. Too much work to do and I don't think the contractor has the resources to do it.

    Yeah, it's not something I plan on doing again. We came out fine though, all we really did was walk around, not climb on things or anything stupid like that. We were at a Mardi Gras party across the street. After my fair share of Southern Comfort I decided I was going get a couple bricks from the rubble of the Twin Towers for a couple of my friends who wanted one because they used to live there. (Wow, that was a long winded sentence.)

    They did a great job of locking up to gates at the entrances off of Taft, but they kinda defeated the purpose when they just twist tied a couple of the sections off of Tulane Ave. together, and it was not hard to get in.

    You are correct. But what fun would our college years be if we didn't get the stupid out of us then.
