New Miami Trace High School Project Update

Winter 2018

The cold weather months can prove to be a challenging time on a construction project. The team hopes for mild weather, but sometimes things don’t quite work out that way. The past few months have been filled with very cold temperatures, with snow and then rain when temperatures moderate. The good news is that the construction team has done a great job of managing the work crews to keep them as productive and efficient as possible during this time. For the entire building, the exterior masonry is completed and windows are installed. Since there are so many smaller activities going on in various areas of the building, a summary is provided below as of February 1:          
Areas E and F (Science and Vocational):  Paint and drywall work going on. Mechanical systems installed.        
Area D (Two-Story Academic Wing):  Metal studs and door frames installed. Mechanical systems (plumbing, electrical, HVAC) ongoing. Final roofing materials being installed.        
Area C (Main office, Commons, Kitchen):  Structural steel almost completed. Metal roof deck ongoing. Lobby area for gym and auditorium being framed.        
Area B (Auditorium):  Structural steel started. Floors poured. Mechanical systems work started.        
Area B (Main Mechanical Room):  Major mechanical systems installed. Electrical panels being installed.        
Area A (Athletic and Gym):  Structural steel being installed in gym. Metal roof deck installed in other areas. Plumbing and electrical work beginning in restrooms and locker rooms.        
Keep in mind that with a building of over 162,000 square feet, construction activities are in various stages as you move through the building. In some areas, cabinets will be installed at the same time that roofing is being installed in other areas. The "art" of these projects is keeping the various contractors flowing through the building in an organized and efficient manner. Ruscilli Construction has done a great job with this process thus far.           
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.
