New Facility Update

Harrison Hills City Schools New PK-12
Construction Update

Construction continues to progress at the new PK-12 building, as crews are working against the tough winter conditions. A significant amount of site work has completed including installation of the concrete sidewalks, light pole bases and asphalt paving of Liggett Lane and Huskies Way.

Foundation work will continue in the two-story high school wing in the coming weeks. Masonry crews have constructed bearing walls in the locker room and gymnasium area. The bearing wall masonry work continues at the middle school wing and administrative area. The masonry bearing walls will support the future pre-cast structural concrete slabs and the future steel structure in the second story of the administrative area, gymnasium/locker rooms, and the kitchen/student dining area. Looking ahead to the winter months, you will see cranes placing structural steel beams in those select areas. Door frames, underground electrical, underground plumbing and HVAC installation and rough-ins continue as areas of foundation and walls are constructed and completed.
