West Albany High School is nearly seventy years old. The construction bond will be used in the development of an auxiliary gym, CTE spaces, student commons, and an auditorium, which will be available for use by the entire district.
Gerding Builders, LLC (GB) continued construction of areas B&C structural steel. The PVC roofing for Area D has been installed. Along with the auxiliary gymnasium being enclosed and receiving drywall. Roof decking has been installed in Area C and is currently receiving the decking and insulation required for the PVC roofing in this area. The Auditorium has received the concrete slab work and is currently in the preparation phase of receiving structural roofing components prior to removal of supporting structure of the tilt panels. Mechanical spaces are receiving ductwork and fire suppression infrastructure. As the COVID-19 restrictions have limited material distribution, it has also released work that was scheduled for summer vacation while students are out of school. The existing building is vacated and is currently receiving new fire detection system. In addition, the main gymnasium work has moved ahead and will evolve into seismic work when permit is obtained.
Activities Scheduled for Next Period
April will focus on the enclosure of the various spaces, applying weather barrier and roofing systems in an effort to enclose the spaces for insulation, dry wall and preliminary finishes.
Highlights, Challenges, Solutions
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic the construction team has revised work plans to make the best of a dire situation. The team has evaluated scope and schedule that was to occur while school was out during spring break and summer and are conducting these activities while the existed building is vacated. This may advance the schedule and gain some of the lost days realized during the beginning of the project.
