Update on Hall High School construction

SPRING VALLEY — A little more than 50 percent of the new Hall High School building project work has been awarded to various contractors and subcontractors, and the project is slightly under the projected construction budget.

Work on bid Package 1 (mass excavation) has been completed, and bid Package 2 work (building concrete, precast concrete, structural steel, waterproofing and elevator construction) is ongoing. Bid Package 3 has recently been awarded (roofing, doors/frames/hardware, glass and aluminum, fire protection, plumbing and HVAC) with work scheduled to begin as soon as this week.

Bid Package 3A (masonry, electrical, and site utilities) is scheduled to be out for bid within the next week, and bid Package 4 (interior finishes) is scheduled to be bid in early summer.

The new Hall High School building project is on schedule with the new school set to open in late August 2015.
