Weekly Construction Update


    Below is an overview of the ongoing and upcoming work on campus.

    Attached is:


    - The 4 Week Look Ahead Schedule


    What to expect on campus May 17 - May 27 : 


    - Windows are being installed across campus, with installation moving from west to east. Window testing will commence June 3rd. Wall finishing will follow once windows pass water intrusion testing. 


    - Installation of louvers and skylight lens on the east roof of the school will take place approximately May 23 - May 28. Remaining built-up roofing (BUR) will be completed approximately May 31 - June 14 using the torched-on process, heating at the exact point of work. This process produces little to no fumes. ACC Environmental will be notified of these work dates 2 days prior to this work's start, and will arrive on campus the day this work begins to install appropriate air monitoring equipment.


    -Walls are insulated and there is sheet rock installed on one side of many walls prior to inspections. Many of these walls will get their second side of sheet rock after the windows have been seal-tested and approved. 


    - Interior rough-in work is being inspected. Once passed, insulation and sheet rock to follow.


    - Site work, outside the buildings, is focusing on street-to-site preparations for utilities. The goal is to have all trenching, pipes, conduits ready for connection to the site itself after scaffolding is removed.
