March 2021 Update




No neighbor issues to report.  



Current Progress

Maine East:  Field House finishes continue toward completion.  2nd Floor Fitness Room flooring is ongoing as is casework and finishes in locker rooms.  Elevator installation is wrapping up as is HVAC systems as we move toward completion.  Progress continues to maintain schedule.

Sitework around the addition scheduled to commence over the next few weeks weather dependent.

The Center Court (Area E) demolition is wrapping up.  Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection installation is ramping up.  Steel install for the new skylight opening is starting.  Additionally, the demolition of the connecting link has started.  Progress continues inline with our schedule.

The Field House Entrance (Area L) is progressing well.  Walls are being painted leading toward the ceiling and finishes.

The ceiling in the original pool has been demolished.  On Thursday March 11th, the District met with Inspect, the consultant in charge of the mitigation.  The next steps are:

  • Have a structural engineer investigate the structural integrity of the ceiling structure.  Inspect is getting a cost for this work and it will include core samples and x-rays.
  • Perform a water mitigation mock up in the mechanical room, which is the lowest point in the structure and has a constant trickle of water.

Once the initial report from Inspect is received, it will be shared with the Board.  

Maine South:  Areas H and J abatement has commenced and anticipated completion April 1st.  Façade and other activities at South will ramp up after Spring Break.

Maine West:  The Field House flooring is the main activity wrapping up.  Additionally PCC is working on punch list items as well as wrapping up misc. façade and door hardware issues.

Site work adjacent to the Field House will commence over next few weeks weather dependent.

The lower-level Rotunda abatement is complete and demolition has commenced.  Excavation of the existing lower-level slab has also started.  Project is off to a good start.  Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection installation in lower level will also start up over next few weeks.
