Over the last couple of weeks, the current landscape at EPS has been changing. We have removed both the old learning center and small gym to make way for the new building project.
The Interior demo of the learning Center began in December. This demolition included the removal of all the interior walls, ceilings, heating systems, plumbing systems, carpet and wall coverings before the shell of the building could be torn down.
Interior demolition of the small gym began during winter break with crews quickly removing the majority of all of the inside coverings and accessories within a single day. Over the next two weeks, in spite of the cold weather, the demolition company was able to complete the demolition of the two major portions of the building, and the two adjacent properties.
This past week work continued on the adjacent properties as they have now been leveled and prepped as construction sites staging areas.
This was a major milestone as now the district begins to concentrate its efforts on groundbreaking in March and prepping the land for the new foundations of the new school building.
