Construction crews completed the most recent phase of renovations on the first floor and ground floor, allowing the team to jump back up to the third floor for the final classroom renovations. Workers have also started renovations in the auto/ metals/welding shop.
Renovation work is now complete in the family and consumer sciences classroom, library media center, certified nursing assistant classroom, office spaces, and other classrooms.
During the upcoming winter break, crews will wrap up work in the forum space, which will include a new School Store and Grab & Go area.
We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction for the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.
Updates on current and upcoming work:
- Pouring the final portion of concrete for the new ramp in the forum, which will improve accessibility to this area
- Wrapping up work on the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection (MEPF) infrastructure, light fixtures, ceiling grid, and painting in the forum
- Constructing the new masonry wall in the auto/ metals/welding shop, which will improve traffic flow
Did You Know? Placing geofoam beneath fresh concrete can reduce the stress on the existing concrete slab below it. Geofoam is much lighter but still provides adequate density to support the weight of the new concrete. It is also often used in construction as a creative way to reduce the amount of concrete that needs to be poured and is easily cut and shaped to fit the space as needed.
