We reported about work on the roof of East Housing in July 2014, you can see details on July 18. – 23. and July 28 2014, as well as March 4, 6, and 11. 2015.

The construction crew built a form around a set of utility vents on the East Housing roof. This will be a retaining platform on which steel housing will be mounted to protect the utility vents.

Concrete had to be transported a long way, from the keystone all the way to the top of the East Housing roof.

The concrete is transferred from wheelbarrows to buckets to make it easier to carry up a long set of steps.
