Work has started again on the new transportation facility that will be located just south of the football field. The site work is over 80% completed and should be totally completed within the next couple of weeks.Plumbing and foundation work will follow. The steel building is ready to be delivered.
The new competition gym is progressing nicely. Work continues on the brick work, both inside and outside. The field house portion of the gym, located on the far west side, is ahead of schedule. With the wind that we have experienced lately, the roofing work has fallen behind. Work on the bleachers started this week. The bleachers will be constructed by pouring concrete on site and lifting the forms into place. Individual chairs will be added later.
The classroom addition project is almost 100% complete. There are only a few punch list items left. The only payment left for the contractor is about $14,000 in retainage. That amount will be paid once the punch list items are completed.
