With the announcement yesterday of two contract awards the Business School inaugurated the preliminary work on the new tract across the Charles. Contracts were let to the firm of J. F. White and Company of Cambridge for the excavating and filling and to the New England Brick Company for face brick.
The J. F. White Company will begin filling on Monday, preparatory to building a road to the center of the tract from the easterly corner. The filling will go on for about two weeks, but will in no way hold up the progress of the excavating. It is planned to break ground for the new buildings within the next few weeks.
Part of the ground plans for the buildings have been approved by the officers of the Business School, although the final draughts have not yet been forwarded by the New York architects, Hegemann and Harris.
