Hitting the Roof: Blanchard Rotunda Roof to Be Installed
November 14

For the second time this year (a 14-ton dome was put atop Kendade Hall in March), the campus will witness a large new roof structure being installed atop a College building. On Thursday, November 14, a capping-off ceremony will be held on Skinner Green at noon, and the roof structure for the rotunda of the new south addition of Blanchard Campus Center will be put in place. The roof has more than 150 separate structural and framing components and will weigh more than 8,000 pounds once a cupola with a glass dome is placed on top of it in two months. At the event, President Joanne V. Creighton will offer remarks, and hot cocoa and cider will be served.

Prior to the ceremony, the community is encouraged to leave its mark on the new roof. Take the opportunity to sign this historic piece of architecture between November 11 and 13. The roof, which will be covered with plywood, will be signed, and then covered in sheet insulation and finished with a metal roof system For easy access, the roof will be placed on the Skinner Green side of the Blanchard construction fence, close to Wilder. Pens will be provided. In December, tours of Blanchard construction in progress will be offered to the community.

The counter is 2,786
