Campus Construction Update, Sept. 3, 2010: 10 Frye St.

In an e-mail slugged “The eagle will land,” Physical Plant project manager John Rasmussen alerted Campus Construction Update to a new development at the 10 Frye St. student residence. An eagle-shaped weathervane believed to be original to the 1873 carriage house at the site is scheduled to return to the roost the week of Sept. 6.

Campus Construction Update, Sept. 3, 2010: Hedge and Roger Williams halls

Paul Farnsworth, unlike Cole Porter, wants to be fenced in. Or at least he wants for the renovation of Roger Williams and Hedge halls to stay within its fenced-in work zone. But his goal, paradoxically, is the same as Cole’s: unrestricted mobility. Now, thanks to the end of construction work outside the zone, wandering over yonder is almost as easy as it ever was.

Campus Construction Update, Sept. 3, 2010: Garcelon Field

“The surface is phenomenal,” Bobcat center and co-captain Brendan Murphy ’11 said on Sept. 2, during the football team’s third practice on the renovated Garcelon Field. Though the grandstand has yet to be erected and there’s still work to do surrounding the gridiron, the playing field was declared ready for action late last week and the first-ever practice took place Aug. 31.

Campus Construction Update, Aug. 20, 2010: Hedge and Roger Williams halls

As this was written, on Aug. 20, Hedge Hall was something to watch as a crane swung long steel beams across the blue sky toward the building. There’s plenty of new steel in Hedge already, says project manager Paul Farnsworth, but the creation of the building’s framework will become more of a spectator sport as it increasingly happens outside the building’s shell.

Campus Construction Update, Aug. 20, 2010: 10 Frye St.

This fall, 23 Bates students will find themselves studying, socializing and sleeping inside a lesson in local architectural history. Acquired by Bates in summer 2009, the large brick house at 10 Frye St. is the latest addition to the college’s stock of student residences. But it’s one of the older buildings in the fleet, dating to 1873.

A 19th-century house is Bates’ newest student residence, the green carpet is rolled out at Garcelon Field and Campus Construction Update is beaming as the steelwork continues at Hedge and Roger Williams halls.
