Substantial Progress on the Building Structure

Construction workers have made substantial progress on the new Southside Elementary School building structure!

Since last month, there has been significant progress across the construction site. Structural steel work on the north end of the building is nearing completion. Masonry workers are installing concrete masonry unit (CMU) blocks to construct the last wall of the gym. In addition, the mechanical and electrical trade workers have started working under the concrete decks.
