Central and Eastern Sections: Looking from over the current science building toward the Chiller Plant on the east. Shoring supports on the east are covered with decking, and then by metal pans for flooring. Proceeding down the picture, rebar is added to beam areas in the middle of the picture, and rebar mats are in position for floors near the picture's bottom. The edge of the courtyard is visible in the lower right.

Central Section - South: Looking southward from Eighth Avenue, rebar is largely in place on the right, while decking forms are being finished on the left.
central-north- section
North and Eastern Sections: Looking north from the crane's boom above the existing Science Building. The stages of work (shoring, plywood decking, metal decking, beam rebar, floor rebar) are seen from right to left.
