Site Improvements

What happened this past month?

• Remaining underground utilities were run in areas under the new middle school addition.
• New transformer was set in existing mechanical enclosure behind high school and new feeds were run into existing
building and to feed new middle school building.
• New concrete pad for bleachers was poured by the track & discus fields.
• The O’Shea job tent is erected and in use! This is where we hold daily meetings with the contractors on site and bi-weekly check-ins with representatives from the school.
• Subcontractors have begun setting up their own job trailers and making a “home” for themselves on site.

What's up next?

The City of Maroa will complete their final connections to the new water loop servicing both the high school and
middle school – this will not impact the school or construction, but will benefit the city for future work.
• Construction will not begin on the new parking lots north and south of the Middle School building until Spring 2022.
Most of the work at this point will focus on the new building while winter conditions prevent much exterior work from
taking place.
