Several companies are working at the new elementary site. The building has been closed in for the most part and Swank put temporary heat in this past week.
Ironworks is finishing the second level framing and deck installation which means an inspection and concrete will follow during the week of February 9. The insulated metal roofing system on the gym roof and second level is complete.
Empire has completed the metal stud exterior wall framing and sheathing and have moved to the inside framing. The metal stud framing for the one level south section of the building is complete. This includes office areas, title room, special education classrooms, library, and kindergarten classrooms.
Roof curbs and openings are being coordinated with the one story membrane roofing installation. The west end of the building which houses the music room, kitchen, and mechanical room will be completed this week and then all that remains is the stairwell on the east end.
Action Electric and Star are back on site this week to begin the electrical and plumbing on the main floor. They will be starting in the office area and south one story section where the metal stud framing is complete.
Windows for the building are from Glo Windows out of Missoula. They are triple glazed, thermally broken, fully insulated aluminum windows that are made in Europe and scheduled to arrive on site in two weeks.
The sewer line and waterline extensions from 10th Ave. East to the school site have been installed, backfilled, and compacted by WHC. The winter weather has been helpful as the frost, or lack of frost, has made digging easier.
The speech and drama students completed their season by finishing third at divisional and tenth at state. The students, coaches, and school would like to thank everyone that volunteered in any way at divisional. It was a very successful event.
