Construction Updates - January 2020 

Northside Elementary

Preschool Space-

The preschool space has been enclosed. Roofing is scheduled to be completed this week.  Once roofing is completed, inside temp heat will be set up. Ground will be leveled and prepared for concrete floor to be poured.  Heaters are being  used to remove the frost from the ground.  

After concrete floor is poured, inside construction will begin.

The ECFE space has been moved so that connection work can begin to the west end of the existing building. 

Exterior brick work is scheduled to begin by January 13th.  (Windows will not be installed until brick work is completed).


Cafeteria/Activity Space-

Block work has been completed.  

Steel has been added and roof deck completed. 

Roofing will be started as soon as crews are completed at the preschool space.

Demolition work is being completed in the entrance and bathroom areas to prepare for connection.

NS kitchen will be closed starting March 2nd to enable demolition work in the kitchen space.  



It is great to see spaces begin to take shape.  

Abatement work was completed in the library during the holiday break. 

All footings and footing walls have been poured. 

Utility lines have been dug and installed, including in the receiving room. 

Crews have started installing steel in the north classroom addition. 

A temporary wall has been built in Mr. Knutson’s office and in the ITV room and demolition work has been completed at the secure entrance area, in preparation for the new secure entrance construction.  

Demo work will continue in the ITV room. 

Steel will be installed for the secure entrance area in the next 10 days. 

A temp wall has been installed up the ramp by the band practice rooms. Demolition of the exterior wall will take place next week so a block wall can be constructed.  This in preparation to remove the wood ceiling and install required steel for the hallway ceiling this summer. 

Precast walls for the performing arts center (PAC) are schedule to start getting set on January 23. 


East Gym-

We forget that the East Gym construction was part of the overall bond.  The gym conversion was completed in June of 2019.  Many compliments about the space have been received. The space has provided a valuable area for PE, Recess, and Discovery Kids activity space.  Because of the new gym space, boys and girls do not have to practice late, which provides more time for youth practices and community use in the evenings. 

In addition, a girl/boy basketball double header was held last week as the space was available.  

Please contact me with any questions about the construction project.
