Weekly Construction Update

  • What to expect on campus November 11-25: 
    - Construction work anticipated this weekend includes interior electrical work, trim, hardware, and door installation as well as casework. Exterior work will consist of back filling areas and completing forms for curbs, walls, and ramps for upcoming concrete pours.
    - Painting of the front of the building, along La Cresta is nearing completion. The scaffolding is being removed and the red support beams on the portico have been removed.
    - Duct work is being installed in the MultiPurpose room, and basketball hoops and roller doors are due to arrive in the coming weeks.
    - Bioswale work in the interior courtyard has begun.

    - Elevator shaft and car construction continues.
    - Case work and stepped seating construction continues in the library, and throughout the building.
    - Interior painting continues with certain beams also being painted.
    - Installation of radiators and cabinetry continues in Kindergarten classrooms.
