Construction is progressing on Southside Elementary School

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Construction is progressing on Southside Elementary School

Construction activity is moving along quickly at the Badger Rock site as crews are making progress on the new Southside Elementary School.

Work continues for concrete footings and foundations on the north side of the site. Construction crews are pouring the concrete footings several days a week, with foundation wall pours happening almost as frequently. The underground plumbing and electric piping is complete on the south side of the project site. Crews will soon start pouring the first section of the concrete foundation slab.

Did you know?

A plastic yellow vapor barrier is placed on the site in preparation for the concrete foundation slab to be poured. This vapor barrier helps prevent moisture from entering the concrete foundation, allowing it to properly cure and stay dry.
