East Gym construction continues to progress.  Attached is a photo with the wood floor installed.  The next steps are to stain part of the floor and paint lines.  Bleachers will be set on May 28th.  The East gym is scheduled to be ready for use on June 1st

  • Bid Package #1 was opened on May 16th.  This bid package includes site preparation, excavation, and demolition at BHS.  Bids came in under budget so if there are no major surprises, we should stay on budget.  The plan is for the auditorium to be demolished this summer before school starts.
  • The architects and engineers are working hard to finish drawings and specs for NS work.  The NS bid package is expected to be released in early June and bid opening mid-June.  We hope bids come in favorable.  Work is expected to start in July.  There will be some inconveniences at NS during construction.  The main front doors will not be usable due to construction and parking on the East side of NS will be used for construction equipment and materials.  Attached is a NS rendering.
  • BHS bid package is expected to be released in August with work to begin in September.
  • The 10,000 gallon fuel oil tank outside the BHS cafeteria was removed to be ready for site preparation and excavation for the auditorium. 

It is exciting to see all of the planning coming together and people getting to see exterior construction starting!  Thank you in advance for your patience during the construction process. Benson is going to have amazing spaces that everyone will be proud of. Thank you for all of the staff input on this process.
