Wednesday, August 25

1: The primary instrument of destruction in this project is the versatile Komatsu PC400LC – normally marketed as an hydraulic excavator but here fitted with an extra long arm for precise, multi-level dismantling of high buildings. Here we see the arm stretched to full length behind Fred Hall.

2 and 3: Fred Hall's last "intact" evening.

Thursday, August 26

4: The very first nip taken out of the building in the early afternoon. A close-up is shown here.

5 and 6: In short order, more of the exterior is ripped away from the teaching laboratory wing.

Friday, August 27

7: The upstairs teaching lab (Room 118) caves in a bit more.

8: During a break in the activity, I got the OK to take one last look at the downstairs lab (Room 22) where I did most of my teaching during the 35 years I spent in Fred Hall on the instructional staff. Here we are looking through the open window toward my old office (Room 22A) in the opposite corner.

9: A view of the rubble accumulated so far outside of the lab.

10: Back to work again, the Komatsu prepares to rip away some more.
