School build on track


Construction at the new consolidated Catholic school here is on track, with footings and foundation walls currently being installed.

“So far things are good,” said Ben Carlson, site supervisor at Finnway General Contracting.

He noted the project is in its early stages, with the company planning to begin laying in concrete block shortly before getting started on the walls.

By the time late December or January rolls around, Carlson plans on having the building roofed to keep the inside heated through the winter.

“The focus is to get closed in as soon as we can,” he remarked.

Once the structure is enclosed, Finnway will shift its focus to working on the interior parts of the building.

Weather hasn't played too much of a factor on the new school build, with solid site preparations being completed last year.

“It's been fairly good,” Carlson said.

“With the site being prepped last year, the drainage is good so it's not too bad with [holding] water, either.”

The new school plans to open in September, 2019.
