peoria high school construction
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/22/2012 -- Custodial employees all across District 150 had to put in extra time up and above their agreed upon limit; however, as a result of the extra effort put in, the interior of Peoria High School is now as welcoming and ready as ever for its students on Monday, when the classes commence.
Even through the mess and dirt left after the completion of the building and renovation work during the summer break has been cleaned from the classrooms where the children are to sit, the completion of the project is not done yet..
The project being carried out in Peoria High School is amongst the many started all over the region. A portion of the building previously known as Loucks School is being destroyed, which caused the beginning of Quest Charter Academy to be delayed till Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Hickory Grove Elementary School in Dunlap is going through its finishing process and the Washington Community High School is all due to be completed this month.
The campus of Peoria High School will flaunt a brand new air conditioning and heating mechanism in addition to six redone washrooms and new windows. The building phase of two new structures will carry on through a large part of the coming school term.
The $18 million construction plan stands at about 30% completion according to the Public Building Commission’s executive secretary. The workers and their crews ripped apart the rooms utilized for science lectures and put down a new foundation for a two-story structure, which will be comprised of nine lab-cum-classes towards the southern side of the campus.
In the northwest part of the edifice, construction workers are working on a new gymnasium that will act as a training center upon completion. The old structure has been demolished and re-construction will commence soon. It should not impact the flow of traffic before or after school times and the buses plan to operate as normal while only select parking spots will be unusable.
"We will be able to open school, and that's the target," Principal Brett Elliott said. "So we're right on track."
The $18 million project is about 30 percent completed, said James Thornton, executive secretary of the Public Building Commission.
Construction crews tore down the rooms used for science classes and laid the new foundation for the two-story building, which will contain nine lab classrooms on the south end of the campus.
At the northwest corner of the building, crews are working on a new gymnasium that will serve as a practice facility when completed. The old building has been torn down, and construction will begin shortly.
Construction should not affect traffic before or after school. Buses will operate as usual and only a few parking spaces will be compromised, school leaders say.
"One of the things we worked on pretty hard was maintaining traffic flow," Thornton said.
Thornton said crews are expected to complete construction in March or April.
