High school 10% complete
Polk County Enterprise - November 2009
LIVINGSTON — During October, construction crews at the site of the new Livingston High School were working to finalize rough grading on the northern portion of the site and pour concrete for the driveway up to the student parking lot. Concrete pours for the student parking lot were scheduled for this week, but will likely see rain delays, according to Richard Crump with Claycomb & Associates, the architectural firm for the project, in a monthly report to Livingston Independent School District Board of Trustees. Dirt contractors were working on lime stabilization at the site and had installed about 300 piers of the 650 that will be needed. Crump reported crews should have all the building piers installed soon. Workers began forming pier caps and grade beams, and began installing the underfloor electrical equipment. Crews were also set to install three-inch conduit for future electrical needs that will extend 18 inches beyond the pavement and will be capped to allow maintenance staff easy access. As of last week’s meeting, the project was 10 percent complete and was on schedule for completion in July 2011. Steel erection will begin in November while crews continue work on site utilities.
