Summer demolition

A wrecking ball is used to weaken the Nuclear Engineering Lab st

Following several months of building prep and asbestos abatement, the time finally arrived this week to demolish Nuclear Engineering Laboratory and the oldest (southeast) section of Sweeney Hall to make room for the future Student Innovation Center. Visible to the north in the background is Sweeney Hall. Crews also removed the fountain and concrete wall north of Hoover Hall. Photos by Christopher Gannon.
