Day 169 - Moving Day
The community college I work at has three construction sites right now. One of the sites will be a new building for our emergency services programs. Currently at the site is a "burn building", a building used for training fire fighters. It had to moved to a new site for construction of the new classroom building.
I went out to document the move. To say the least, I was completely fascinated by the process. The building moved only about 1/2 mile, but from the time they started the move until had it rolled onto the new foundation it took nearly three hours.
The shot above is looking underneath the building at the steel support girders.
Below is the tractor and building in the final stages just before they started pulling the building onto the foundation.
