This is the underside of the mezzanine. That hole is a test cut Shawmut (Harvard’s contractor) ran. They’re going to be taking down about 1/3 of the mezzanine, opening the space up with high ceilings and natural light. We can’t wait.
It’s really exciting to start to see the hidden areas of the building exposed. In this case we’re looking at steel I-beams, really big ones and sort of big ones. And cast concrete floor above. The only reason you can’t see through that hole right now is that they put a door on top that says “HOLE” for safety.
