LES Building ProjectLES Progress via a Time-Lapse CameraConstruction Update – Summer of 2017
The summer months continue to be a period of fast and vast progress for the new Latrobe Elementary school project. During the past months, the contractors have been laying masonry, setting steel and pouring concrete and thus creating the structural frame or backbone of the school. Bearing elevations have been met for the stage, kitchen and back of house (mechanical) and are awaiting steel roof joist. General Contractor Nello Construction is anticipating steel delivery within a few weeks which will include steel columns, beams and bar joist for second floor construction and roof deck. All MEP primes also have been very hard at work installing many below slab infrastructure items including item such as electrical conduit, plumbing sewer and sanitary lines and mechanical runs that all must be placed prior to the General Contractors work.
Thanks to our strong design and construction team, the project remains on schedule, under budget and the project team does not foresee any issues that will delay the anticipated opening of school for the 2018-2019 school year!
A special thanks to our community as well as the Board of Education and School Authority for their solid support during this project.Elementary School Master Plan and Timeline
