January Construction Updates
Posted December 20, 2018
The Prairie Lane Design Advisory Committee continues to meet to discuss plans for the extensive renovation with additions to Prairie Lane. New updates, shared by TACKArchitects and Project Advocates,will be unveiled to the Board of Education and district leaders at a luncheon on January 11. Construction is set to begin in Summer of 2019.
Final framing and roofing continues at Swanson to create the signature “Butterfly Roof” at the building entrance and administration area. Crews are also starting exterior face brick installation on the learning bar portion of the building, and interior wall framing and rough in continues. Mechanical units are now installed and will become operational in early 2019.
Crews are installing steel on the upper level of the new Westside Boys & Girls Club at Westbrook. They will use the holiday break to take utilities/sewer across the driveway on the southwest corner of the building. Masonry work is continuing on the lower level. As weather permits, they will be pouring the concrete floor slabs and begin the exterior wall framing. Drone photos taken by our partners, Project Advocates, show this extensive work in progress from above.
