Detailed Description

Out with the old, in with the new! A state-of-the-art aquatic science laboratory is being built on the shores of Lake Huron at the USGS Hammond Bay Biological Station (HBBS), one of seven field stations of the USGS Great Lakes Science Center, operated in partnership with the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. To make way for the new laboratory, four old buildings on the HBBS property needed to be removed. Three buildings - a former limnology laboratory, workshop, and metal storage building - were demolished, whereas one building - a nearly 100 year old boathouse - was relocated on the HBBS property for safe-keeping during construction. This short video features time lapse photography of the building demolition and boathouse relocation, and is the second video in a multi-part series documenting HBBS renovations (watch the first video in the series featuring construction of a 1-million gallon water tank, pump house, and pipeline at: https://youtu.be/5hjJ9IoBLJA). Ground breaking for the new lab took place in October 2017, and construction is expected to complete during fall of 2018. Future construction milestones will also be chronicled using time lapse photography, so look for more videos in the future!

USGS Hammond Bay Biological Station
Building Demolition & Relocation

A new laboratory
is under construction at
Hammond Bay Biological Station.

To make way for the new lab,
three old buildings were demolished
and one building was preserved.

This time lapse video shows
preparation of the construction site,

demolition of an old limnology building,
workshop, and storage building,

Coast Guard boathouse for
safekeeping during construction.

Tree removal (watch the background)

Workshop asbestos abatement

Demolition day!

Wow! That was fast!

Let's watch the workshop demolition
again in more detail.

That was pretty neat!

Let's watch the entire demolition
one last time from a different angle.

All gone!

Time to rescue the old
Coast Guard boathouse.

Did you catch that?

The boathouse was hauled away
behind a backhoe.

Let's watch that again
in greater detail.

As we watch the sun set over
the bare space, we eagerly look
toward the changes ahead.

Ground-breaking for the new lab
took place in October 2017.

Construction is expected to
complete during fall of 2018.
