The bond project for South Albany High School will include the development of a new multi-purpose/auxiliary gym, theater upgrades, the renovation for CTE classrooms, plus the development of new CTE spaces. The theater upgrades will support the construction of a lobby, concessions, elevator addition, and a restroom expansion.
NorthWest Engineering Services Inc. (NWESI) hosted the project’s commissioning kick-off meeting, with DLR Group, the District, Gerding Builders, LLC and key subcontractors in attendance. NWESI is the Project’s Commissioning Agent, who is coordinating many of the complex systems, particularly lighting controls, and heating ventilation and cooling controls.
The new Building 10 auxiliary gym complex saw the last of the Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) walls getting installed, except a portion to the south wall, to accommodate erection of steel roof joists by T-Plus, the last two weeks. The existing Building 10 saw plumbing and steel studs installed for the second-floor restroom near the new health science classroom overseeing the main gym. Most of the building has received its new fire sprinkler system.
The new Building 4 Classrooms saw floors being finished and polished, walls getting painted, and final installation of doors and many ceiling components. Final casework was put on order and may be delayed (this is being monitored closely with the casework supplier).
The Building 4, Fab Lab 2 and Maker Space saw installation of compressed air lines and stations, and electrical bus bars for student Career Technical Education (CTE) use, as well as lighting and paint. The building’s metal shop also saw installation of new welding hoods and paint. The overall building also saw installation of its new fire sprinkler system.
To the south, the Covered Fabrication Area finished removal of the previous asphalt, and large areas were dug, storm water forms and drain lines placed for the new metal building’s footings and storm water planters coming early August.
Further to the south, demolition for the Building 5 Wood Shop was completed. Then, in Buildings 1 & 2 Restroom remodels went from demolition to electrical and plumbing installation, as well as new floors and wall tile looks very sharp with the school colors. The Building 8 Theater saw a lot of wiring for the new stage lighting and AV systems, as well as framing the new Make-up room and storage room.
Finally, along the north end of campus, the new decorative fence was installed, including one of the two new sliding gates serving the bus loop.
