Summer renovations are wrapping up

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Summer renovations are wrapping up

As we near the end of summer, most phases of construction are wrapping up as finishes are being installed. Crews are hard at work to ensure spaces are ready for students and staff in the fall.

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.

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.

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.
