Trenches for the Foundation

Once the ground was thoroughly compacted, chalk lines were drawn for the positions of foundation and utility trenches, and the backhoe went to work!

The position and extent of the trenches indicate the footprint of the extension to the existing wing of the Sahyun Library.

That's Mike, the foundation foreman, studying the plans to determine if the trenches are the correct depth before he and his crew begin to build forms.

And while Mike was planning the next stage for the extension, John DuBois and Jim Friestad were busy indoors removing bookcases and display cabinets in the librarians' room, which is scheduled to be demolished on or about October 18.
