Summer renovations are wrapping up
At the same time, crews are prepping for the fall construction phases, including areas on the first and third floors. Some construction activities from the summer phases are still ongoing, with a few areas slated to be wrapped up during the school year.
The interior courtyard is being excavated in preparation for concrete foundations that will support the new additions
New additions are taking shape
The new pool and gym additions are taking shape, with concrete walls being installed along Regent St. and Highland Ave. The elevator pit has been poured and the site is getting ready for new masonry block walls, which will form the corridor and locker rooms for the new gym and pool spaces.
The interior courtyard will include a connecting hallway from the theatre and pool areas to the new addition. Much of the onsite excavation and foundation work will occur in the upcoming weeks and crews will begin to install the structure using large cranes.
The polished concrete floor in the ceramics room is complete and the space is ready for final coats of paint

Did you know?
In the lower level of the Van Hise wing, the original concrete is ground and polished to create a finished concrete flooring. This technique accentuates the small rocks within the concrete, giving the flooring a truly unique finish. In addition to its one-of-a-kind look, finished concrete flooring is also less costly and easier to maintain.
Bathroom tiling and fixtures were installed and ceiling tile will be installed next week
In the old gym area, workers painted the walls and installed the ceiling grid for the new classroom spaces, and will install the flooring next week
Crews completed demolition work in the old locker room area and will begin cutting and removing the sections of the concrete flooring to install new underground plumbing piping
