Interior walls are being framed as the exterior brick and stonework continues.
Knowlton Commons on the second floor, made possible by a generous gift from the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation, is sure to become a popular gathering spot for students from every discipline, not just the life sciences. A two-story “bay window” projects out from the building, providing a great view up the campus mall toward Kauke Hall.
This shows how the new building will connect seamlessly with Severance Chemistry. This airy, spacious corridor runs from one end of the two joined structures to the other.
This is an artist’s rendering of the Gault Gateway Classroom, named in honor of Flo K. Gault ’48.
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!
