The 6-inch by 24-inch cylinder contained a link to the Web site for the Dave Letterman Show’s take on 10 signs the Earth is too hot; a photo of project manager Brenda Whitmore sitting on the topping off beam; five postcards of New Hampshire; and a CD of Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

And that’s just the first eight items. There are 60-something more markers of history inside the time capsule that President Mark Huddleston stowed in a hole in James Hall Tuesday.

The building is undergoing complete renovation, adding 14,000-square-feet, an elevator and new working systems. What’s more, the construction is being done to meet LEED standards. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, verifies that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures.

Once complete, James Hall will be just under 75,000-square-feet.

Move in is planned for the 2010 winter break. Work, according to Whitmore, is slightly ahead of schedule, and on budget.
