April Construction Update
Over March break we embarked on the second project within Phase One of the master facility plan— the renovation of the gym into a Science & Innovation Center. The crew moved quickly to demo the floor (we saved some pieces for projects!) and removed the lockers, bleachers, and more. Windows and doors were cut through the brick walls, including a large entrance on the side of the building so heavy equipment can move in and out. The existing gym soon turned into a giant sandbox in order to pour the necessary footings needed to support a second floor.
We continue to make progress on the Athletic & Wellness Center. The roof is complete and windows have been framed. It’s easier to see our building vision come together as the siding and windows go up. Interior framing of the offices, lockers rooms, and other spaces is underway, and installation of the mechanical systems such as HVAC and electrical have also begun.
