Construction of the Emily W. Hundley Library and Center for Graduate Studies is near record pace as the mild winter has allowed crews to begin piecing together the super structure. By March 1, the first beams of steel were in place and just five days later, the skeleton of the whole right side of the building was standing tall.
As of March 10, the main portion of the building was in place and the steel form for the cupola was set.
The project is on a 12-month schedule and, weather permitting, should be ready by late December 2012.
The recent mild weather allowed work crews on the St. Catharine College campus to begin the first stages of building the new Emily W. Hundley Library and Center for Graduate Studies back in November 2011.
Workers from M&J Construction have begun work on the footers, while truckloads of concrete were being delivered to pour the bottom section of the elevator shaft.
