Construction Site Work
Hagfors Center construction remains on schedule. Wet winter weather this week and last week has slowed some of the exterior work, causing crews to focus on advancing interior work. A look at the interior of the third floor on the north wing is above. Below is a summary of work scheduled for this week, depending on weather conditions:
Rooftop mechanical area. Construction crews are building the support of the screen wall that will cover the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning units in the rooftop mechanical area on the north wing. The top photo at right shows the mechanical area from the west side.
Precast exterior brick. The precast exterior is now being installed on the final side of the building — the south side of the west wing. Crews will also install the precast exterior brick on the south end of the north wing’s partial fourth floor this week. The bottom photo at right shows the precast brick installed on the north wall of the west wing.
- Brick installation. Work begins this week to lay the brick exterior of the flexible classroom on the south side of the building. The flexible classroom connects with the lobby area to form a learning commons.
- Window frames and glass. Glass and window-frame installation continues on the first three floors of the north wing. Crews are preparing the west wing for installation as well. The sealants used in this work require dry conditions, so the installation schedule is weather-dependent.
- Roofing. Installation of the final roofing layer is ready to start, but also is dependent on dry weather conditions.
- Interior work. As noted above, mechanical, electrical, wall framing and drywall installation continues this week. In addition, painting has begun in the mechanical rooms in the basement.
