Foundation work underway

The portico at the Kimbel Library entrance was demolished in order to make way for the "bridge" element that will connect the existing library with the new Information Commons. The new building will be directly accessible from the library at both floor levels. The "bridge" will contain the lobby at first floor level and a reading room at the second floor.

Now that the auger cast piles are complete, the grade beams are underway.
