We did a Pryor High School punch walk on the 31 that included the media center, two corridors and student services. All together it went pretty well, there are several items that need attention but nothing major wrong. The glass company has been back this week and they have the doors into the media center complete. There was a mistake made on some of the measurements for the walls that had to be reordered, but that is in the process now. The laminated wall people have finished all but one panel and are waiting on it to arrive. Flooring continues in the south commons area but is nearing completion.
This week the banquette seating was installed in the north commons area. They have set the booths and the stools at the counter. There are still some to do in the south commons area, but the tile isn’t to a point that they can be installed yet. The glass doors into the media center are being started again. There was some damaged tile that had to be replaced in the entrances before the glass people could install the frames, but they were replaced and the doors are going in. Tiling in the south commons is being installed and should finish soon. Kitchen equipment in the demonstration kitchen and the production kitchen is being installed also. Sod is completed outside.
The glass people were back this week and have started putting the splined between the glass panels that surround the media center. This gives those walls some rigidity and also holds them straight. The doors into the media center have been started, but there is a tile issue that has to be fixed before they can continue. The flooring and wall tile contractor has also been back and started the tiling again. They are supposed to work over the weekend to try and get ahead some.
A lot of just cleaning and straightening up this week. The flooring contractor is supposed to have his material and get started back the middle of next week. There isn’t a lot to finish from the front to the back of the Pryor High School media center, so it shouldn’t take too long once they get started again.
The glass people came and installed the door in the new storefront at the south entrance, they will return next week to finish the doors in the media center. Electric and data is finishing in the media center and the front of the project. Some of the counter tops and seats were installed this week also.
The painting has started at the Pressbox and is going well. They are ready for the ceiling grid to start in the new areas. MEP trades are working to finish their parts and flooring will be next.
The EIFS has started on the high school patio wall. There are a couple of larger areas that the new storefront didn’t cover that are being infilled with EIFS. They started this week and have the base coat on all the areas. Inside, they are waiting on wall tile to finish the archive area then just a little more wood system wall covering and that area will be complete. The new commons area in the front is nearing completion. Still need the counter tops and to finish the fire curtain. In the culinary arts kitchen they are needing the gas valve shut off that connects to the fire suppression system, then that area can start finishing also.
Framing at the pressbox is complete. They have finished the softball platform and stairs and have the door from the middle area to the outside framed. MEP trades have finished their rough-in and the drywall will be starting soon. EIFS is nearing completion and the “thin brick” is underway.
The EIFS and thin brick has been started on the pressbox. They have finished the south face of the baseball side and are working around the rest. Framing inside is nearing completion, the softball wall and deck is framed, and MEP trades are working on their part before the drywall is installed.
The glass around the media center is making a big change in the look of Pryor High School. Crews installed all that was on-site and are waiting on the rest to arrive. Most of the glass in the storefronts has been installed also.
Wall covering in the archives area is nearing completion, and the finishers and painters should be here next week to start getting that area done. The painters will be going through the classrooms to address the punch list items next week while they are here.
The carpet in the media center at Pryor High School is 80% complete. They are working on the circulation desk installation now. The painters are doing the final painting and the glass is scheduled for mid-week. The millwork in the lounge and workroom was installed last week.
There are still some items that need to be finished, but both of those spaces are getting close to completion.
We did a punch walk in the classrooms on Friday. They have a list of items that still need attention before we take full possession of them.
The baseball roof was dried in on Saturday, and they are working on the top sheet and flashings today. The platform on the baseball side of the press box has been framed and the exterior sheathing is almost finished too. This will dry in the baseball side and they will be able to continue working inside regardless of the weather. The softball side framing will start soon.
They are starting to install the cooking and refrigeration equipment in the culinary arts kitchen. Most of the equipment is onsite, and the MEP trades are starting to make the connections to the services. The demonstration classroom is re-framed, and the drywall is ready for paint. There was a problem with the way the storefront dividing the classroom from the kitchen was installed, but that is being corrected now.
Crews are making a push through the existing classrooms to finish anything that was still outstanding in preparation for the punch walk next Friday. Hopefully this will finish those spaces, and we can concentrate on other areas.
The framing in the archives area is ready for drywall. They have the studs finished, and some of the wall tile has been installed. A lot of the finishes are millwork and tile that will be installed by other trades.
The baseball pressbox is scheduled for roofing Tuesday of next week. The framing has picked up, and they are close to finishing the baseball side walls. After the walls are complete they will start on the platform that is raised floor. They will move to the softball side as soon as the baseball part is done.
Not much change to the PAC mechanical project. I received another pump last week, still waiting on the final one to ship.
The hollow metal window frames have started being installed in Pryor High School. They have all of them on-site and are installing them soon. Ceiling grid is finishing at the south end of the media center hallways, painting is going on in several areas and light fixtures are being installed also. The wood panel crew has been back and is almost caught up with the rest of the finishes.
We have moved into the new student services area at Pryor High School. There are still some minor items to complete, but this will allow the demo of the existing office area to be done while we are out of the building. At this point, anything that will reduce the disruption to our staff and students is welcomed.
Student Services in the High School is close to being usable. The lighting is in, plumbing fixtures are installed, the main desk is almost complete and the flooring is down. Still need the data terminated and some minor items finished. We should be able to move before we leave next week.
Student services are coming along in Pryor High School. The painters need one more coat of paint that will follow all the other trades. Tiling is complete in the restrooms, ceiling grid is complete throughout the area, lighting is being installed and the reception desk is in place. Floor leveling is scheduled for this weekend and flooring should follow closely after.
This week has been about getting student services at Pryor High School ready to go. Both restrooms have tile on the walls and floors. The offices are ready to paint, and the reception desk is being installed. Painting is scheduled for Monday. The new teachers lounge, work room, offices, and some of the media center is also ready to paint.
The new sanitary sewer line from the High School to the east property line is finished and in service. The plumbers have the football building tied into the new line also. There is still the final grading and sodding to do to complete that part of the project. Crews are working now on lowering the water lines that are a conflict with the new parking area south of the high school building.
The drywall is going up in the media center and student services area. Crews have most of the media center office and storage area installed and finishing is starting. The painters are onsite following the drywall finishers as soon as an area is ready.
The rain shut down the plumbing work that had been going on to connect the new sanitary lines for the back of the High School. This only affects the new spaces and nothing we are currently using has been interrupted. Once the sanitary line is completed, they will start lowering the water lines going across the new parking lot.
