    Wood and beams at North Middle School The new building at North Middle School is under permanent roof, with only finishing details remaining for roofing.

     

    Sheetrock started on schedule March 5, and permanent power was energized March 14. Window installation started the first week of March and a portion of the building has temporary heat. Interior painting will begin at the end of March. Brick is nearly complete in the courtyard and the mason will move to the outside walls very soon.

    Heavy snow at North Middle School construction site While productivity was slowed by the weather, the contractor continued to install exterior sheathing, interior framing, and plumbing and electrical rough in. Some work items however, such as roofing and exterior weather barrier couldn’t be installed in the snow.

     

    At this time, the general contractor is looking for ways to make up time, including overtime.

    The project is dried in as of yesterday via the vapor barrier membrane.  Two crews of roofers are on site and installation of the PVC roofing membrane is well underway.  Metal studs and interior rough-in continue.  Exterior sheathing is about 50% complete.  The electrical feed for the new building will begin soon and enable the move into the new boy’s locker room.
