    The Walls are Gone!

    Posted July 18, 2014

    This week's blog post is contributed by Physical Education Department Chair and Aquatics Director, Rae Asbridge.

    I was able to check out the Lower Level renovations last week and was amazed at what I saw! Coming down the Bailey Circle stairs, the first thing I saw was the constructed wall that has the boys’ locker room door as the entry way down the hallway. Both locker rooms, including the athletic offices, are completely gutted, and they look so big! I can imagine what the new lockers will look like in there!

    Summer Work Extends Beyond Lower Level

    Posted July 11, 2014

    I took a quick walk around today to observe two building projects in progress at the school. In the Lower Level, the capital project underway includes construction of the Fitness and Training Center and full renovation of locker, shower and bathrooms. The new lockers arrived today and were being unloaded off the truck as I observed. The lockers are being stored until ready for installation, as are a number of other products that line the Lower Level halls: metal pipes, electrical items, and cosmetic finishes. The space that will house the Fitness and Training Center has been fully opened up (that is, the corridor wall has been removed) and trenches have been dug to accommodate plumbing work.

    During the week of faculty and administrative meetings, the sounds of demolition were evident throughout the building. The accompanying pictures show that construction of new spaces in the Lower Level is well underway. Both the girls’ and boys’ locker rooms and shower rooms have been gutted, and corridor walls have been demolished where the new Fitness Center and training rooms will be installed.
