Slideshow: Inpatient Hospital, Cannon Garage Demolition
Demolition of the above ground portion of the North and South Cannon Garages was completed in early March 2021. The new Inpatient Hospital foundation work continues upward, with the first structural deck concrete pour occurring March 4. Construction on the 1.9 million-square-feet hospital began in fall 2020 and is the largest single facilities project ever undertaken at Ohio State.
- The removal of the slab-on-grade and below grade foundations for the North and South Cannon Garages will continue through the end of March.
- Work continues on the Inpatient Hospital foundation, including concrete foundations, waterproofing of elevator pits and basement slabs, as well as the first structural concrete deck pour in early March.
- In the coming weeks, basement excavation and foundation work will move east toward the James Cancer Hospital, backfilling the site where the Cannon Garages once stood. By the end of March, the new Inpatient Hospital concrete elevator cores will be progressing upward.
