On Friday, the final steel beam for Williams Hall was lowered into place. Following long-established construction tradition, an evergreen tree and and American flag were fastened to the beam before it was raised. And since this is a College of Wooster project, it seemed only appropriate to flank the tree with another banner as well.
We’ve been enjoying a run of warm, sunny weather, so work on the foundation has been moving along at a steady pace. Soon the first loads of structural steel will be arriving on site.
Excavation for the foundation of Williams Hall has begun!
And just like that, major demolition of Mateer is complete. Lots of debris to be trucked away over the next couple of weeks, but here’s a quick look back at how the building came down. Enjoy!
A few days ahead of schedule (!), the demolition of Mateer has begun.
Faculty and staff have been relocated to temporary offices, the building has been emptied of its contents, fences are up, and construction trailers are in place. In just a few more weeks, the demolition of Mateer Hall will begin, clearing the way for construction of the Ruth W. Williams Hall of Life Science.
