Razing of Cody Hall to commence this week

It’s the beginning of the end for Cody Hall this week, as a demolition team prepares to bring down the former residence building.

Jones Group Demolition plans to begin razing the building on Tuesday, May 22. The work will be done by heavy equipment, with no explosives necessary, explains Mark Rudkin of Facility Services.

“The contractor will use excavators with extended reach arms equipped with shears to cut the structural steel,” Rudkin says.

He expects the demolition to take about four weeks, during which time the area around the building will be fenced off. There will be some noise and dust associated with the demolition, and dust control measures will be used as needed.
