Weekly Construction Update

  • Below is an overview of the ongoing and upcoming work on campus.
    Attached are:
    - The 4 Week Look Ahead Schedule
    - Photos of points of interest across campus (see descriptions below).
    What to expect on campus September 3 - September 16: 
    - The application of stucco to the exterior of the building has begun on the north side of campus (at the fire lane, as well as at the upper yard courtyard, and around the multi purpose room.) This first coast of stucco is called the scratch coat which is considered a base layer of stucco with horizontal lines scratched into it. A brown coat, to ensure evenness, and a top coat, for finish texture, will follow in the coming weeks.
    Picture below show this installation. The first photo shows a point on the exterior where the first coat of stucco has been applied, next to and area awaiting the application.
    - Tilling in hallways and bathrooms is nearly complete with work remaining on the upper floor.
    - Taping and painting of hallways has begun.
    - Bathroom epoxy flooring has been completed, and bathroom fixtures are now being installed.
    - Sheet-rocking is nearly complete in the multi purpose room.
    - Grinding and polishing of basement floors is to begin in the next week or so.
    - Work at the front of the school continues with infilling and grading of the areas surrounding entrance ramps, the oak tree, and planters. Dirt is being compacted in this area as well and preparations for concrete walls are in process.
