We are delighted to share that the construction phase of the new Fernway Elementary School begins today. While residents may notice some additional noise and traffic, we do not anticipate prolonged road closures or significant impact on traffic flow.
Please note that construction schedules are always subject to change, and we will provide regular updates as needed. We expect the building to be substantially completed by the middle of May 2020, with final completion in July 2020. This means we currently remain on track to reopen the school in August 2020.
In the coming days, expect to see the following work at Fernway:
June 11, 2019: Precision Environmental Co. arrives on the site to prepare for demolition of the back of the building to accommodate the new addition.
June 14, 2019: Gilbane Building Co. office trailer delivered to site.
June 14-19, 2019: Additional site mobilization, including delivery of equipment, materials, portable toilets, etc.
June 19, 2019: Digging begins to secure the footers for the new addition.
June 19, 2019: Precision Environmental to begin demolition of masonry and interior for new addition.
June 19-25, 2019: Work begins on the permanent roof, pouring of roofing curbs and preparation for trusses.
We will continue to update as construction progresses. Sign up to receive the Fernway Report, a regular update on how the District and Shaker Schools community is moving forward following the July 10, 2018 fire.
