Phase One of the site demolition is nearly done. Since we started the demolition at the end of July, all of the oil tanks and piping, the coal conveyor, and all the fuel handling buildings are gone. We've shipped 12 barges of scrap metal so far, keeping 900 trucks off #SalemMA streets.
The most recent major milestone was the take-down of the #5 Stack, the last of the large structures south of the Fort Avenue entrance.
Our goal for Phase One was to "get out of the way" of the new construction and we're just about there. Demolition work will now shift to the area north of the entrance driveway, including the main building and the two remaining stacks.

Science Building Study The university is in the process of conducting a programmatic study for additional science facilities. Given the proximity to existing laboratories in Meier Hall, the vacant lot from the former library is the target location in this study. Payette, a leading architectural firm who is conducting the study, will perform test borings to ascertain ground conditions at this site in the coming weeks. We will provide notification once these borings are scheduled. Payette will attend the SSUNAC meeting on January 21, 2015 to gather neighborhood input prior to the start of the design phase.
