Stairway to Heaven (part 2)

Ken Snyder
Last August, I wrote a blog about our grand staircase. This is the staircase that is just inside the main entrance at the SW corner of the building. It is on the curve of the boomerang that Huntsman Hall forms as it sweeps around the current Eccles Business Building.

These stairways will be glass-enclosed. That means that people on the outside will be able to see the people on the stairs, and that the people on the stairs will see the people outside – and also have nice view of the Wellsville Mountains and the south end of the valley. An absolutely great view!

The news is that yesterday (finally!), we started installing the grand staircase. The first step is to install some columns to which the staircase will attach. I took some pictures of the workers installing the base of the columns, and also of the vertical view of the columns (see attached).

The pieces of the grand staircase will be installed in segments. The first segment being installed this week will be Level 1 (the basement) to Level 2 (the ground floor). In about two weeks, we will start installing the 2nd segment which will connect Level 2 to Level 3. The 3rd segment will follow about 2 weeks after that. Please watch for this installation over the next 6-7 weeks. I think you’ll be amazed by our stairway to heaven.
