Status Update: Northwestern University’s Harris Hall

Work continues on the renovation and expansion of Harris Hall (1881 Sheridan Road, Evanston) at Northwestern University.  The building, erected in 1915 is being gutted and retrofitted on the inside, and getting two new expansions on the outside.

The machine you see in the picture was digging a hole, presumably for an expansion foundation, when we snapped this photo.

Work is expected to continue for another year.
