The hub made it safely to Clifton Forge this afternoon, and was moved to its final resting place on the site. Everything lined up almost perfectly, and with a few taps from the sledgehammer, the entire piece fell into place.
After it was bolted into place, we checked to see how level it was. The entire hub in both directions was perfectly level- a testament to our design and craftsmanship of the hub and to our design of the concrete formwork and foundation.
The Virginia Tech design/buildLAB is a Project Based Experiential Learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built architecture projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The blog is run by design/buildLAB students who are designing and building a fieldhouse for the Clifton Forge Little League.
