Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The demolition of the original John X. Jamrich Hall at Northern Michigan University in Marquette is underway this week but many parts of the facility are continuing on.
The project is starting with the removal of the connector walkway to the West Science building.
Demolition of the building itself is scheduled to begin next week.
NMU officials say most of the building’s furnishings were repurposed elsewhere on campus or by area schools and community organizations.
Five other NMU buildings inherited classroom furniture from Jamrich Hall, and area organizations including the Marquette, Negaunee, Ishpeming, NICE Schools and the U.P. Children’s Museum received some of the remaining furnishings.
The local Carpenters Union also took two dozen doors to be used to teach apprentices how to mortise and install lock sets in doors.
