ORIGINAL CONSTRUCTION DATE
Construction is substantially complete at Halcyon, and we were thrilled to welcome everyone back to the new and renovated building! The existing part of the building which was demolished down to the support structure, looks brand new. This part of the building houses classrooms for our older students. New furniture has been installed in all areas of the building. This modern furniture is lightweight and can be moved and reconfigured as needed. Most classrooms have some soft seating and chairs that wobble or rock so students can release some of their fidget energy. The outdoor areas all around the school look great with new landscaping and several hardscape areas for outdoor learning. There is a playground and basketball court for students to enjoy during breaks.
The existing part of the building has been demolished down to the support structure to allow for floor to ceiling remodel of the space. The interior floor plan will be reconfigured to create larger and more functional learning and support spaces. Interior finishes and most building systems will be all new. Check out the photos below to see project progress.
Phase II of the project has begun with the exciting demolition of the east side of the old building! Neighbors, staff and students alike took time to watch the action. With that part of the building gone, the focus of the work ahead will shift to remodeling the west side of the old building. There will be a notable increase in activity once school is officially out for summer.
We are in the homestretch for this phase of construction. The new additions look great and everyone is eagerly anticipating moving into the new spaces next month. After students and staff move in, construction will shift to the existing school building. Work in that area will continue through the summer and be substantially complete when students and staff return in August. Work planned for the month ahead is detailed here.
The new additions are really taking on their final form as the bulk of the work moves inside. This phase of the project remains on schedule, and we are still on target for occupancy of the new spaces near the end of March. At that time construction will move to the existing school building and continue through the end of July/early August. The progress is exciting to see! Work planned for the month ahead is detailed here.
The new additions are really taking on their form, with the installation of structural steel and roof trusses almost complete. As always during this time of year, weather can throw a wrench into the schedule with this type of construction. However, outside of a few minor issues with snowy days, the work is on schedule and proceeding as planned! As a reminder, the work at Halcyon will continue through early August 2021, so many exciting changes will materialize in the months ahead! More
