So much is happening in such a short span it is hard to keep up! Lots of things are going right, but some go wrong, too, so we have to adapt! Extra paint peeling, a drain that doesn’t match up with the floor level, a little more asbestos here and there, too much moisture in the concrete to lay down flooring. None of these things are fatal, it just means more time and sometimes more money in the project. These things are not unusual and are to be expected, which is why there is contingency $ set aside and the general contractor has to get creative about shifting things around in the schedule. Overall, we are pleased with where we are at the moment.
VCT (vinyl composite tiles – without asbestos backing) are going in! Ceiling grids are going up as are the lights.
They are working hard on the front entry – a gentler slope, walk off grates to keep the school cleaner, and no more monkey bars (railing):
And the color continues to pop up here and there. Each class gets an accent wall and gets painted in the corner where the door is widened.
Gym floor goes down next week, ceiling tiles go in and carpeting should start soon. Summer is flying by!
