September, 2019: Design Process to Begin

Seismic work was completed before the start of the new school year. DLR Group, the project architect, is preparing to initiate the design processes of the next phase of work scheduled for the spring of 2021. The bond team is working on a plan for community and staff involvement.

August 15, 2019: Seismic Work Continues

Fortis is making great progress with construction activities and remains on track
despite the unforeseen items that come with remodels. Some of the unforeseen items include equipment or ductwork in the way of new seismic braces or clips or heaters/HVAC that needed to be removed off an entire wall length rather than just a small section due to the original construction.

This project is still on schedule and within budget.
