Oh, what a difference a month can make when it comes to a building project. And that’s exactly what folks at Nooksack Valley Middle School are counting on as crews near the final push for the new middle school construction project.
With the old middle school demolished, work continues both inside and outside to prepare the new school for the start of school on Aug. 30. Installation of the new steel truss that spans the entire gym is nearing completion, the second-floor hallway and classroom tile installation is progressing well and the new wood ceiling and lighting in the commons area looks spot-on. Cabinets have been installed, fixtures are going in and some areas have experienced final touches.
Outside, work continues on preparing the site for families and students, everything from a new sidewalk, patio space, parking and even a new asphalt play area.
The work will continue at a feverish pace for the next month.
