Our next meeting is being held on Monday, July 11, 2016, at the high school at 5:00 PM.
As you drive by the building now, you will see the façade being installed around the auditorium fly loft to “smooth out” the structure. Masonry work will also begin on the STEM building (located on the Proctor Rd side of the building). Ahead of beginning this work on the main building, the contractors had to complete their tasks on the mock-up. Their work is then inspected and subsequently approved by the designer to complete their trade on the main building.
We also received the following question through our web page:
Q: Do the structural steel specifications require the steel to be primed? This is the first I’ve seen rusting steel on a new school.
A: Prior to closing in the building, a spray foam fire retardant is applied directly to the structural steel. Some oxidation (rust) on the structural steel is preferred to help the spray form fire retardant adhere to the steel. The process completed has been inspected and approved by the designers.
