August 7, 2012

Santa Rita Project:

This project is complete.

Holiman Project:

This project is complete.

Lee Project:

Work is nearing completion on the first floor and we should be ready to open the front door again before school starts. They are in the final stages of installing ceiling and floor tile, carpet, wainscot, door hardware. This will leave 5 classroooms in the north hallway of the original building for fall. I hope we can get everyone out of the portables by the time school starts.

Goliad Project:

The south wing is almost complete. We are waxing floors and should move the last teachers into their new rooms next week. There is still some site work to be done but 99% should be complete before school starts.

San Jacinto Project:

We are rushing to finish the cafeteria at San Jacinto. The rest of the campus should be complete when school starts except for some finish work in the '50's edition. There is new parking on the east side of the school that is also underway.

Central Project:

Kelton Ag and building maintenance shops: Complete

Tucker Admin/classroom wing: Complete.

Phase 3 Renovations: The Student Service Center is complete and operational.

Banneker 1: - Complete

Banneker 2: Complete.

Schweitzer: - Complete.

Cafeteria: The cafeteria area is closing in on completion. Windows have been replaced, snack bar and rest rooms are receiving finishing touches, new wiring is pulled and ceilings are going in. We are expecting a finish date of August 13th.

Courtyard: Our courtyard renovation is coming along. They have completed the concrete and sprinkler work and laying pavers and installing landscaping. We still have about a week on this project.

Michelangelo: Renovations continue. We are nearing the final stages and should be able to move in about August 13th. New wiring is in, painting is in progress, new restrooms are almost complete, ceiling and floors will soon follow.

Crockett Project:

Site work is well underway with new drives and parking in the front, new sewer lines have all been connected, and electrical lines are nearing completion. The north wing has wainscot, paint, and ceiling grid complete. Lighting and millwork are coming along but we may not make this completion prior to the first day of school. The cafeteria is being painted and preparations are being made for flooring and lighting to follow. We are probably 10 days away from completion on this area but will be up and running when school starts.

Glenmore Project:

The new addition is complete. The 14 classroom addition that connects to the new addition is coming along but there is still a lot of work to be done before we can move back into these rooms. This is going to run down to the wire but will be complete when school starts. The office area will not be ready for the start of school but they are located in classrooms that are vacant due to the move to the new and renovated spaces.

Bradford Project:

The building is coming up with steel erected, roof decking complete and site work moving along. The site will be cleaned up and ready to go when school starts. We are still looking at the possibility of closing in the exterior hallways of the existing building when we get to that point in construction.

Reagan Project:

Upstairs is mostly complete and we should have our Certificate of Occupancy any day now. The demolition of the ground floor and site work are progressing. It will be like a maze on the site when school starts, but we will have all student areas safe and ready.

Lake View Project:

Plans are being finalized for this project. We will meet with the principal and start construction fencing prior to school starting. I am anticipating a price for the project around the first of October.
