Superintendent's Update

Friday, October 7, 2016

Construction Update:  We are making progress!  Crews started pouring concrete this morning at the Career and Technology Building.  They are pouring 25,000 square feet today and will come back and pour the remaining 13,000 square feet next Tuesday.  Steel is scheduled to arrive for this building on October 17.  Demo of the current gym entrance at the high school will begin next week.  This area will be fenced off and spectators will have to gain access to the gym through the band hall entrance which is just north of the current gym entrance.  Dirt work has started at Van Intermediate School and Van Middle School.  It will not be long before forms will be built and readied for concrete.  At J.E. Rhodes Elementary, the white roofing cap sheet has been installed on the west wing of the building.  Crews will continue to work their way around the building installing this last step of the roofing process.  Once completed, crews will begin installing the HVAC systems on top of the roof.  Sheetrock has been installed in the gym and cafeteria area and ceramic tile will be installed in the restroom areas of both the gym and cafeteria next week.  The bricking of the building has begun as well.  Mason crews have started bricking the upper levels of the gym and cafeteria.  The bricking of the lower level should begin next week.  This will really transform the looks of the building.  I am excited for the community to see this transformation.  This building will be the source of a lot of pride!
