The construction of a new residence hall on the Juneau campus is well underway. Walls are being installed and concrete floors poured. The recent work gives us some nice Before / After photos. November 8-9 the contractors had the big blue concrete pump truck on site pouring the ground floor concrete slab for Freshman Resident Housing Hall I. They poured the floor slab for the commons area and then framed up the first wall in Freshman Resident Housing Hall II. This week the framers finished the first floor walls in Hall I, the exterior walls in Hall II and plan to complete all the interior walls by the weekend of November 16. The mechanical contractor is following close behind the framers installing piping. The contractor is getting more workers on site each day and the work is progressing nicely.
I always get a kick out of Before / After photos. Whether it is looking at high school yearbooks, driver’s license photos or family photo albums, I find it interesting to see how we have changed over the years.
