Mechanical Work Moves AlongMarch 30, 2009
Another walk around an under construction Dobson Hall shows that the mechanical work appears to be moving swiftly along. Almost all the piping and HVAC has been laid or hung, and they are now installing the units that will allow every resident to control the temperature of their own room. The work on the administrative wing (where the offices and multipurpose room will be located) moves swiftly along with the removal of old mechanical machines. The new mechanical room (located where the old computer lab and pool table used to be) is full of brand new machines and pipes to ensure the safety and comfort of the entire building and the residents. Here are some pictures from our latest visit and at the bottom you will notice a lot of new 3-D images.
