Below is the latest update on construction activities at Monroe Hall, as reported by Tommy Raymond, Assistant Director of Construction in Physical Plant:
The concrete and steel foundation for the base of the tower crane is now complete. The concrete is curing and gaining strength, and crane construction will begin when the concrete reaches sufficient strength. The electrical transformer and power supply for the crane are being installed, crane components are arriving, and preparations are underway for the actual erection of the crane. Plans are progressing for the structural components of the new North and South stair towers, and these steel packages will begin to be fabricated shortly. Foundation work is continuing on the North side of Monroe. Thank you for continuing to observe construction detours and barricades.
