Elementary #21’s interior work is quickly evolving! During September the oven hood, warmers, walk-in freezer and refrigerator were installed in the state-of-the-art kitchen. Basketball hoops, the shot clock and scoreboard were installed in the gym. The stage area’s light fixtures were hung and the ceiling grid in various parts of the school was put in. Ceiling tiles will be placed in October. Other interior work such as ductwork, painting and electrical is ongoing.
Metal roofing is complete on the school’s Large On-Site Sewage system (LOSS) building, while interior plumbing, ductwork, electrical and paint is ongoing.
Exterior work continues on the site as well. The asphalt-treated base has been placed for 49th Drive SE, which is the new road that leads from Maltby Road to the school’s main parking lot. Additionally, there were two weekend closures during September to allow for construction of the roundabout on Maltby Road, as required by WSDOT. It is now complete with ample signage and will assist in maintaining traffic flow on Maltby Road, as well as maintaining safe access to and from the school entrance.
Materials for the 25 millimeter pad for the athletic field have arrived and are scheduled for placement in October.
