After the lecture, students visited the job site.

Many comments were received from the students, including: "I'm looking forward to seeing stairs in the new library that will make it wider than it is now," and "It was interesting that tools used in construction were compared to animals."

In addition, Chung-Lu Construction donated them books on construction titled "Gradually completed" supervised by Kajima and published by Froebel-Kan Co.,Ltd , which has become popular books at their library as well.
