The Construction of E2-EITC


The New Building and the Escape from Machray Hall


As is pretty old news now, we moved from Machray Hall to the Engineering and Information Technology Complex in 2005. This was a huge thing for the department, in terms of having state-of-the-art facilities after being "temporarily" in the back half of a library for 30 years. It was also a huge thing for me, moving away and being less in touch with departments in Science, and closer to our colleagues in Engineering. The moving itself was also an interesting change: the experience of packing up and vacating an area I had been familiar with since I was a student myself, and moving on to new and different things. Establishing folkore instead of living among it.

This is a jumping-off point to the pages that I set up documenting the construction and move.
