Deconstruction at Curtiss Hall

Curtiss Hall

Demolition of the two levels below the Curtiss Hall auditorium, in preparation for the student-centered Harl Commons, is about 75 percent complete and should wrap up before the semester break. Project manager Kerry Dixon-Fox said about three-fourths of the commons project is demolition and cleanout work to open up the space.

When Harl Commons is completed next summer, it will feature a student lounge area, coffee counter, meeting room and a balcony suite of offices for the college's Agricultural Entrepreneurship Initiative. The project also adds a ground-level entrance to the east side of Curtiss Hall and a larger elevator that will service every level of the building. Photo by Bob Elbert.
