Construction work continues on the Elementary #16 worksite. In these photos you can see that crews have leveled the ground and are preparing to lay the concrete that will become the floor for the east wing classrooms. The piping for the chilled water cooling system is also being installed.
Fowler Construction is also staging for masonry block to begin. Structural steel for the building will be on site soon which means we'll soon see the walls start to go up for the building.

Crews continue to make good progress at the Elementary #16 construction site. As you can see in these photos, the extension of Massey Drive that flanks the south end of the school campus has now been paved. Waterproofing material has also been applied to the foundation walls of the school. Workers have also laid down the concrete base floor for the gymnasium. Crews are also installing the infrastructure for the main electrical room, and they've started working on the west end of the classroom wing. Administrators tell us that the project is moving along well, right on schedule.
