Southside Elementary School Is Starting to Take Shape

Construction of Southside Elementary School at the Badger Rock site is moving along quickly!

Since last month, there has been significant progress on the construction site. Structural steel work on the south end of the building is complete. Crews poured the second and third floor elevated concrete decks. Masonry work on the stairwells is complete and is moving along on the gym walls. In addition, the mechanical and electrical trade workers have started working under the concrete decks.

Structural steel work is ongoing in multiple areas of the building
