Some Details
brackets (1)
Outside the corridor west of the temporary Science Library, spacers provide a base for flooring forms. Normally, metal bins are used for this purpose, but smaller spacers are needed in small areas.
conduit inserts
Inserts provide space for electrical conduit that must go through concrete beams.
brackets (2)
A metal bracket is screwed to the wall, near the corridor window just outside Minna Mahlab's office.
brackets (3)
Another bracket attaches to the existing wall, near the northern window (near Minna Mahlab's office).
Western Section

South Eastern Section: Rebar mats are largely in place for the first floor deck, just north of the Math/CS/Psych wing of the existing buidling.
