College to monitor library demolition with 24/7 live stream

Library demolition begins in earnest as Chalmers comes down | FINN HUNSAKER

With the start of the demolition of Olin and Chalmers Memorial Library on Sept. 24, the College set up a live stream to document the process, which was announced through a Kenyon Digest email the same day.

To stream the construction, the College is working with a company called mMultivista.

“There are several companies out there that document construction projects, and we get calls from all of them for every project. This is the first project where the scale of the project made sense to document it in this way,” Chief Business Officer Mark Kohlman said. “We wanted to provide access to the community to see what was going on in real time.”

The stream will be available through the Kenyon website until the completion of the new library. After construction is complete, there will be a time-lapse showing the entire process — from the destruction of the current library to the completion of the new one.
