Accelerating Construction

It’s been a busy month! Construction on the Kam Memar Lower School began with the demolition of the Randall House on Jan. 9. Since then, crews have cleared select areas of the construction site to allow work to begin.

Stabilizing the site to prevent erosion and control rainfall discharge has been the primary focus thus far—a typical first step for all construction projects. Heavy rain hasn’t made it easy for those working on the site, but they’ve pressed on and continue to make progress.

Over the coming weeks, crews will relocate the utilities—power, water, gas, etc.—that serve the Lower School classroom building in order to dig the foundation for the new structure. Once this task is complete, likely in mid March, installation will begin on a complex system of structural shoring adjacent to the existing building to allow for the excavation for the lower levels of the Kam Memar Lower School.

You may not notice much change as you drive by, but know that much is happening underground to make way for our beautiful new building!
