Inspired by this article, we asked the Meyer Najem Superintendents and Project Managers about the weirdest things they’ve ever found on a construction site.
Here are some of the responses:
“At the Noblesville Library, we uncovered a 1950 Ford Pickup Truck.”
“At Noblesville City Hall, we found an 1889 dime worth about $300 and a few old water wells that had medicine bottles with “Noblesville Pharmacy” cast into the bottom. We gave the dime and some of the bottles to Noblesville City Hall and put one bottle in a time capsule to be opened in 2056.”
“We found a stone that was used in games that Indians played. At first, we thought it was a dinosaur egg! I was also on a site where we found Indian bones. That project was shut down and never completed.”
“When I went to a site to scope out a location for a groundbreaking ceremony, I found an abandoned hot tub and a deer carcass.”
“We’ve also our fair share of live animals including baby racoons playing in trash cans and below access flooring, a red-tailed hawk that flew into the 8th floor and began freaking out, flying the length of the building until it flew into a window, knocking itself out cold. A worker then picked it up and put it outside on a roof where it flew away. And, we’ve had our fair share of live deer too.”
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever found?
