I decided to check on the progress of the A-Building demolition to see if they had finished the job. What I saw instead were 5 excavators on top the rubble moving pieces from one pile to another. It appears there is still a TON of work for them to do! I’m glad there’s rain inContinue reading “A-Building Clean-Up at Burlington High School”

A Building Rubble
I have been visiting my old school, BHS, to see how the demolition is advancing. Well, practically all of A Building has been demolished. It’s not completely gone, though. It appears some classrooms are still defiant. And admittedly, I’m glad. I understand it needs to come down. My inner child is giggling, though. The expectationContinue reading “A Building Rubble”
Burlington High School: Demolition Continues…
I wanted to see if A Building had been completely demolished. That had been the goal for the Saturday work crew. Although the auditorium is now rubble, there’s still portions of A Building still standing. Note the logo on the beam: Vermont Structural Steel Corp. How cool is that???
More Burlington High School Demolition
According to the Burlington School District, they expect the demolition to be completed very soon. A Building may be completely demolished by Saturday afternoon. That’s wild, but very likely doable. As you’ll see both in the video and photos, those machines have wreaked a ton of havoc already. And that’s what they’re supposed to do.Continue reading “More Burlington High School Demolition”
Volvo Excavator on the Go!
https://youtube.com/shorts/wz-SNzxjmRk?feature=share As Burlington High School is being demolished, I followed this excavator with my camera. I enjoyed watching it roll over the sidewalk with ease. As I filmed, there were multiple groups of students walking up from North Beach, which is at the end of Institute Road. I had to keep pausing the video, soContinue reading “Volvo Excavator on the Go!”
Burlington High School Demolition Has Begun
BHS is contaminated by Poly-Chlorinated BiPhenyls or PCBs, for short. These are cancer-causing agents. According to the School Superintendent, these PCBs had leached into the concrete itself. There was no saving this high school. So, the demolition of Burlington High School has begun. I know it’s necessary. It still hurts, though. The demolition began onContinue reading “Burlington High School Demolition Has Begun”
Burlington High School: Soon to be Demolished
ALL VIDEOS GO LIVE AT 12:30AM EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME. I drove over to Burlington High School to see what it looked like. Admittedly, I was somewhat surprised to see such tall (maybe 7-8′ tall) fencing around it. I did figure EnviroVantage would be closer to demolition at this point. Looks like I was correct. SeeingContinue reading “Burlington High School: Soon to be Demolished”
Herbert T. Davis Memorial Garden: A Pet Cemetery
I stumbled upon this place and wanted to see it. I decided to film it because you deserved to see it, too. I wish there were flowers, but the trees were certainly lovely. June and Herb Davis built the first Humane Society of Chittenden County’s (HSCC) facility. They are considered the modern founders of thisContinue reading “Herbert T. Davis Memorial Garden: A Pet Cemetery”
BHS Concessions Stand & Training Room
I had never walked the Burlington High School Athletic Field before. The fence is usually locked. On April 1, 2022, though, it was wide open. I saw what looked like concession stand windows, which they were. Walking a bit farther, I saw what I initially thought was an office. The sun was shining very brightly,Continue reading “BHS Concessions Stand & Training Room”
Crane in Motion
I was checking in on Burlington High School in Burlington, Vermont, one afternoon. When I saw the crane lifting pallets onto the roof of A Building, I knew I had to film and share it with you! I hope you enjoy it as much as I!!
