Jamrich Hall Demolition to begin

The demolition of the original John X. Jamrich Hall at Northern Michigan University with the connector to West Science has begun. Demolition of the building itself is scheduled to fully begin next week, however, the outer sidewalks have been blocked off from pedestrians.

The Original Jamrich Hall is in the process of teardown. Crews were seen here Tuesday pulling out some insulation from the top of the building. The walkway from Jamrich to West Science is set to be the first thing to be demolished.
