Sometime between midnight and 3 am on Dec. 27, part of the northwest portion of Minard Hall collapsed. NDSU police patrolling campus found steam rolling out of the north side of the building. No one was in Minard at the time.
Excavation work was being done on that side of the building by Meineke Johnson Construction as part of the $18 million Minard Renovation Project.
Bruce Franz, NDSU director of facilities management met early Sunday morning with structural engineers from Heyer Engineering, soils consultants from Northern Technology, contractors from Meineke Johnson, and representatives from JLG Architects, all of Fargo.
