McGaw Hall demolition to start this week

The construction of the DePaul School of Music will progress this week with the demolition of McGaw Hall set to begin Feb. 8.

An email sent to students from Vice President of Facilities Operations Bob Janis said the demolition will begin Wednesday.   

“We will begin the demolition of the structure at the north end,” Janis said. “Nothing too fancy — no explosives, no big crane dropping a big steel ball through the roof. Just big claw excavators taking the building apart bite by delicious bite.”

The School of Music is set to be complete by spring of 2018.
