Interior renovations are starting to take shape

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

Interior renovations are starting to take shape

Construction activity is ongoing across eight areas of the building. Demolition and environmental work are complete in most areas and rough-ins for utilities are well underway. Crews are starting on finishes next week and will begin painting, flooring, polished concrete, and ceramic tile work.

Making space for new building additions

Demolition started on exterior structures and walls in preparation for the new pool, gym, and fitness additions. Construction workers used a remote-controlled robot to safely and efficiently remove a three-story stairwell in the courtyard area. The removed stairwell will make way for a new addition, which will improve building circulation and access to the new pool and gym additions.

Excavation work is wrapping up in the main area of the additions and the earth retention system is almost completely installed. Workers have also started installing the first concrete footings, which will be used to support the concrete masonry walls (CMU) for the exterior of the new gym and pool.

Earth retention systems are used to protect adjacent structures while an excavation takes place. At West High School, the earth retention system is used to support the streets, utilities, and structures next to the excavation.
