Walla Walla High School
Contractors are finishing the sheetrock on the new science building. The district received approval this week to start closing the ceiling grid and interior cabinetry is arriving next week. The science building project is on schedule for a mid-August finish. The Wa-Hi civil project is underway as most of the campus grounds are under construction.
Blue Ridge Elementary
The Blue Ridge Elementary roof project is nearing completion. The new roof membrane has been installed and local excavation contractor AKey Construction is finalizing catch basins to support the diversion of runoff water from the roof to keep it away from the building.
Pioneer Middle School
Local contractors Nelson Construction Inc. and Royse Excavating are busy prepping for the installation of the temporary multipurpose room. This phase also includes the civil infrastructure work for the seven modular classrooms and restroom facility which will also be housed on west end of the main campus. These temporary facilities will provide a safe and suitable environment for students while construction begins in the fall in the 1950’s wing. Walla Walla Electric is installing the main electrical service on the east-side of the building off Bridge St. Visit the district’s Bond Updates webpage to watch the progress live from the project’s west-side construction camera. There is also an east-side camera to capture the front of the building as the project continues for the next year and a half.
Bid Documents and Bidding
The district is finalizing all of the bid documents for both Pioneer Middle School and the rest of the Walla Walla High School project. These documents have been submitted for agency and jurisdiction review and will be completed by the end of this month. The district will put the Wa-Hi project out for bid in August, with Pioneer Middle School going out shortly afterwards.
