Exterior demolition of Swanson Hall

Exterior demolition of Swanson Hall

The interior demolition of Swanson Hall is now complete and exterior demolition is underway. With an estimated 12,000 tons of material, it will take over 1,100 truckloads to haul the debris away. During this phase, excavators carefully separate materials such as concrete and steel for recycling. The demolition process is expected to last until the end of September and once complete, the team will begin excavation for the basement of the new Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.
