Concrete Progress

Our construction crew has been working on the walls of our future wing. Please enjoy a few pictures of the concrete progress we've made over the past two weeks!

Our construction crew built forms for the walls and added rebar for reinforcement.  When that was all done, they poured in the concrete.

While we're on the topic of building, do you know how a penguin builds its house?  Igloos it together.

Here's a snapshot of one of the concrete mixing stations.  Once the concrete arrived, the construction crew's job just kept getting harder and harder.

After the concrete set, the external framing was removed. Check out these walls! 

Stay tuned for updates on the steel work -- I'm sure it will be riveting.

Not Just Another Brick in the Wall

We hope you've been enjoying our construction jokes; otherwise this post is going to drive you up the wall.  We're having too much pun to stop now!

Our construction crew has been working hard all week -- they haven't hit a wall yet and have continued making progress.

These will be the future walls of our black box theater.  

Did you hear we're doing a theatrical performance about puns?  It's really just a play on words.

While our construction is going on, the parking lot is a little smaller than usual.  A lot of students and teachers have been biking to help make room for cars in the lot.  Our bike rack is looking nice and full this week!

By the way, why didn't the bike stand?  Because it was two-tired.

Where the Sidewalk Begins

This week's construction update: more rebar is being installed and a new sidewalk is in the works!

Despite the rain this week, our construction crew has been out creating the rebar framework for our future walls.

A new sidewalk is being built around the construction site for safe passage from the parking lot to the entrance.

By the way, did you hear the joke about the sidewalk? It's all over town.

Here's a quick snapshot of the site on Friday afternoon.  Construction is coming along!
