Construction Update     |   July 6, 2017
Below are updates for Eagle Point Elementary School and Windsor Elementary School as we move through the phases of final construction and grand openings!
Eagle Point Elementary School
July 6th update from Findorff Project Manager, Aaron Zutz

Eagle Point is making great progress as summer stretches on. The precast wall panels are up, and steel joists have been placed in the future library. Foundations are set and ready for the structural steel to go up in the library as well. The framing is progressing for the gym corridor and the gym roof is nearing completion. Read more about the progress and what's coming up in the weeks ahead in this week's Executive Summary (link below).

"Did you know?"  
Steel is a very versatile and important product in the construction industry. Steel can be recycled repeatedly without a loss of strength. Due to this, almost 70 percent of steel is recycled in North America each year. That's more than 80 million tons!
Windsor Elementary School
June 30th update from Findorff Project Manager, Sara Michalski

The 4th grade resource area is framed and drywall is starting. The classrooms are getting primed and painted as well. Finishes are in full force for the 3rd grade space. Cubby and floor installation is coming up soon. The markerboards and tackboards are going up, and light fixtures are in all of the classrooms. Read more about the progress and what's coming up in the weeks ahead in this week's Executive Summary (link below).

Windsor will host a Grand Opening Celebration, 5-7 pm on Tuesday, August 29. Watch for details in early August!

"Did you know?"  
Findorff's in-house MEP department leads and supports commissioning tasks with regular visits to the project site to monitor construction and completion of the MEP systems. They use equipment start-up checklists to schedule the installation and testing of each system. This is valuable for project teams who do not have third-party commissioning agents.
