Summer is here!

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

Summer is here!

This week marks the first full week of summer, which means construction is actively progressing at West High School. Seven phases of work inside the building are slated to be complete by the end of the summer.

Making progress on site

  • Demolition has started outside the building on the basketball courts. Six excavators are onsite removing debris and digging for the new athletic addition.

  • Crews are cutting holes in the exterior brick walls of the current gym space for windows, which will provide more natural light for the future classroom spaces.

  • The site is being prepped for utilities, which will be installed throughout the current parking lot area.

Excavators have many uses, sizes, and attachments depending on the type of job they need to do. As one of the most used construction equipment, excavators offer stability and safety features that help ensure a safer job site. At West High School, the excavators are currently being used for demolition, digging, and debris removal.
