UAS FH Construction Update for 11/22/2013
One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
Thursday we got more than a foot and half of powdery snow at the construction site. I saw this as a Treasure of photo opportunities to capture a fresh white blanket covering our campus. Below I have shared with you just a couple of these Treasured photos.
The Contractor was less enthused than I was about our blanket of snow. He saw this as a big blanket of Trash that was getting in the way of building the Freshman Residence Hall. The snow covered up all of the identification numbers on the red iron, so each piece of red iron had to be brushed off before he could tell what piece of iron could be installed nest. This week they have installed a large portion of the red iron that makes up the commons area. The snow made mess for the mechanical contractor that they had to brush, shovel and haul it away before they could continue to install water and wastewater piping. The snow on top of the metal pan deck of Residence Hall #2 made it so slippery up there that workers had to shuffle or crawl around just to keep from falling down.
Even though the Contractor saw the snow as Trash that had to be moved and I saw the snow as a Treasure of photo opportunities, I think we both agreed that we can hardly wait for the weekend to go skiing, snow shoeing and sledding.
