New Miami Trace High School Project Update

April/May 2017

During late April and early May the crews have been very busy with the utility lines that are underneath the building floor slabs, building foundations and walls in the main two-story academic wing. Crews have also begun to form the walls for the science wing and the vocational agricultural department.

During the week of May 8, the concrete crew poured the first building slab within the building for the project. The slab is in the western half of the two-story academic wing. Next will come the slabs for the remainder of the academic wing and the science and vocational areas.


A separate masonry contractor has begun work on the foundations and walls for the auditorium and gymnasium area. These walls will soon begin to rise from the ground.


The site contractor has been very busy finishing the storm sewer lines near the back of the visitor football stands and in the area in and around the retention basin at the north end of the site. They have also installed the base layer of pavement in the parking lots in the front of the building. The sanitary sewer line between the new school and State Route 41 has been completed. This involved a great deal of work in front of the existing school and near the new tennis courts.


Local contractor Tony Penwell, of Tony’s Welding, is providing all of the structural steel for the project. His crews will soon begin erecting steel columns and eventually the bar joists for the second floor during the month of June. Prior to installation, students are being given the opportunity to sign their names to steel beams that will become part of the new school.


As soon as school is closed for students on May 25, the site contractor will begin working on the main campus as they begin to tie the roadway all the way through the entire campus. Although disruptive, this is a key enhancement for traffic flow for our parents and school buses each day. This will involve reconfiguring the existing middle school parking lot, bus garage parking lot, and the main driveway near the central office. They will also be working to complete the storm sewer line between the new site and State Route 41.


If you have not already done so, please take the opportunity to view the link on our district website to take a “virtual tour” of the new school. This feature gives a very realistic and exciting opportunity to “fly” through the building. The project continues to be on track to open for students in January 2019.
