    Tambark Creek Elementary school is new name for Elementary 18 Elementary 18 has a new name – Tambark Creek Elementary!

     

    At the December 4 board meeting the advisory committee provided the board of directors this list of names and rationale for each. The board considered the names, and had the opportunity to consider other names in their final selection.

     

    “All of the names presented to the board had merit,” stated Carol Andrews, newly-appointed board president. “In the end, the board felt Tambark Creek Elementary was the best representation for our new school. The school overlooks Tambark Creek and Tambark Creek County Park. It keeps the focus on the surrounding geography and will help students remember conservation as they learn about the wetlands on the school site.”

     

    Many thanks to the advisory committee, students and community for all the suggestions! Learn more in news release.

    The contractor continues exterior metal stud framing and sheathing installation (Sector 4 is 30% complete). Roofing insulation and underlayment began mid-November and continues the process of “drying in” the building.  Waterproof insulation has started for Sector 1.  A “Masonry” pre-construction meeting was held on 11/27 with the owner, architect, contractor and sub regarding the details involving the masonry installation.  A pre-construction meeting will be scheduled for site concrete (such as curbs, etc.) and landscape irrigation.

    Structural steel erected Another milestone was met with the installation of the last major structural steel beam, which completed the “topping out” of the steel structure. Work continues on interior and exterior framing, exterior sheathing, rough-in of mechanical units and ductwork, electrical and plumbing. Workers have also begun to install roofing underlayment.

    The contractor has poured approximately 90% of the concrete slab at both the first and second floors and has poured the concrete slab at two of the three third floor mechanical penthouses. Interior and exterior metal stud framing continues as does the exterior sheathing installation. Mechanical ductwork, plumbing and electrical rough-in is progressing. Roofing insulation and underlayment will begin in mid-November and will begin the process of “drying in” the building.
