This time-lapse video is the first in a series of composite datasets that will document the demolition of Engineering Administration Building (ENAD), the old power plant and the subsequent construction of the Active Learning Center. This composite video shows a track hoe initiating demolition on August 18, 2014. Wrecking ball activity begins on August 19 directly above that initial hole. South wall and Interior demolition proceed through August 26. The West ENAD exterior wall is removed and the ENAD part of the demolition is substantially completed by September 23. Additional demolition activities such as water vapor misting to control dust and use of small equipment for sorting debris can be observed throughout portions of the demolition video.

This video was produced by the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP) with funds received from Purdue’s Office of Engagement for the Corps of Engagement Award received in May 2014. Cameras and on-going capture of photos documenting the ENAD and power plant demolition and the future construction of the Active Learning Center are funded by the Purdue Libraries and Kresge Challenge Funds from the Lyles School of Civil Engineering. Camera installation was coordinated by Alex Hainen (firstname.lastname@example.org), Andy Sydelko, and Dave Burford.
