Demolition Complete in Buildings 18, 20 and 22 (Entire Rear Portion)

Looking north west at rear portion
Just this morning we completed demolition of the southern section of Graham House and we have started on the footings by placing steel rebar.  It's another milestone for the school as we take the first steps in erecting the new superstructure.

Excavation complete

Once the footings, underpinning and foundational supports are fully in place for the rear portion, we will begin to erect the new steel frame.

Demolition will then continue on the north (89th Street) section of Graham House right behind the facade of the old building.  In effect, the new superstructure of the rear section will help brace and support the facade of Graham.

The first of the footings
Looking straight down at the site of the rear portion.
Notice the pure volume of space we are about to fill
