the Building C Demolition: 07/18/2012

Monday, July 18, 2012. Building C is ... gone...

Loading debris. It went over to Seattle to be separated and recycled. The leftovers went down to a landfill in Oregon.

Metal was separated out from everything else during demolition.

Utility vault work in the driveway right at the entrance to the A building. B building directly behind.

Sod and the old paving is stripped off and piled.

The B building has had its north end demolished to make room for the new building footprint. The B building will ultimately be demolished.

All that remains of the C building is the slab floor.

the Building C Demolition: 07/16/2012

Monday, July 16, 2012. Building C is down to the back wall and parts of the side walls, and they're trucking debris off-Island. Plus, barn swallows, and a peregrin!

The C building is down to three exterior walls.

Swallow!!

This slab was cut off a cedar felled between the B and C buildings. Some sort of exterior furniture will be made from it.

Utility vaults are trucked in and unloaded.

The excavator chews away at the remaining C building walls.

Getting right down to the bitter end.

the Building C Demolition: 07/13/2012

Day two, Friday, July 13, 2012. Demolition's progressed, to say the least. There's almost nothing left but three walls of the building shell, and a bunch of sorted debris.

5314_Bldg_C_demo_071312

The interior of the C building is slowly reduced to nothing.

5338_Bldg_C_demo_071312

As the sod is stripped off, cobbles are brought in and stockpiled. The cobbles will be used in over 600 pilings.

5361_Bldg_C_demo_071312

The remains of the C building were sorted and piled as the building came down.

5391_Bldg_C_demo_071312

Munch munch...

5423_Bldg_C_demo_071312

Some of the green piping was used to tight-line the new storm drain system.

Nothing really left of the C building but the exterior walls.

the Building C Demolition: 07/12/2012

Day one, Thursday, July 12, 2012. I went down in the morning, and again in the afternoon. In morning the front wall had been knocked down and the interior was being gutted. Way more time was being spent sorting and piling scrap than actually knocking anything down.

Day one, Thursday, July 12, 2012. By that afternoon the interior had been gutted back to the second set of classrooms.

the Building C Demolition: there and back again

Sometimes I just like to take photos of the same mundane walk I've followed dozens of times...
