We thought we’d take a minute to update you all on all the excitement on the New Los Lunas High School Phase 1 project!
As you may know the focus of this summer’s endeavor is to prepare the building pad for the Phase 1 building construction commencing this Fall 2012. To date, the General Contractor has begun the demolition of the outdated north-central campus buildings, which will eventually include a portion of F Wing, all of D Wing + C Wing, and the food service and cafeteria areas this summer.
Currently, a portion of F Wing and D Wing have been successfully demolished, the other buildings scheduled to be demolished through July. Concurrent with the building demolition, site utility work is underway to re-feed the existing buildings to remain, and relocate new utilities outside of the Phase 1 building’s footprint.
Come August, the new building footprint in central campus will be secured, existing building services restored to operation, new pedestrian and traffic pathways established for the coming school year. Faculty and students returning to school will find the Contractor’s yard completely fenced and isolated from the activities of the remaining campus, minimizing disruptions to instruction on campus.
Check back, there’s a lot going on at LLHS!
