October 24, 2013

It's been awhile since I posted an update on our construction project.  Today, after our weekly meeting, we put on our hard hats, our safety glasses, and our shoes and went into the construction area to see the progress, up-close.  The project is progressing at a nice, steady pace!

Workers are building the beams for the roof of the custodial building.  

Construction on the new classroom building will be starting soon.  Workers are still grading the area; extra dirt had to be brought in, and soon, they will excavate footings.


This is the back of the administration building where the mechanical room will be located.
The PCNC/Transition Center/PTO room will eventually be housed here by the front of the administration building.  There will be two restrooms adjoining their room; those are the sunken square areas in the photo above.
Just beyond the avocado tree in the photo will be the site of our new media resource/student support center.  Unfortunately, the avocado tree will probably have to be removed.


I thought I took a photo of the principal's office and adjoining conference room, but it didn't come out very well.

Fall Break is over, and students return to school tomorrow.  A lot was accomplished in six days!  Here are some photos to show what was done.

What a pile of dirt after digging a trench for the water line
last week
The contractor promised to have the area
covered by today.  It is!

     
With rainy season coming up, we were concerned that
students could slip on the wooden sidewalk and
stairs.  
The contractors painted the stairs and porch and added
sand to prevent slipping.  It looks much nicer, too!

  Tomorrow, workers will be pouring cement for the administration building pad.  I won't be in school, so I'll share photos on Thursday when I return.

The workers are busy!  They're trying to get as much done as possible since we're on fall break.  Here are some photos taken today.

Digging a trench between B and C building for the water pipes

Between A1 and Portable 17 -- they cut the cement for the lines and the workers will be painting the stairs/platform for P12 and P13.
This is the Administration building; getting ready for the concrete pour next Wednesday.

Making lots of progress on the custodian building!  

Tree trimmers are cutting the trees by the new fire lane. We've been waiting for approval to remove these trees. 

This tree was removed by the end of the day (I forgot to take a photo).

The walls are almost done!
Seeing how much is being accomplished this week makes me realize how challenging it's been for the contractors to work within our school schedule!

Look!  The walls of the custodian room/restrooms/JPO room are going up!




And the Administration Office is moving along nicely, too!
