Construction at the Beaver Dam High School is ongoing. Craig Warmbold toured the campus with administrators and construction personnel on Friday and he files this second part in a series on the progress of the project.
(Beaver Dam) The construction at the Beaver Dam High School that is part of the $49-million-dollar referendum approved by voters in 2016 is both on time and on budget. That’s according to school Superintendent Mark DiStefano who says he is really happy with where the project is at right now. DiStefano says as students find their way to new but temporary classrooms during this second semester, the learning spaces are approximately ten-to-12-percent complete. Senior Project Manager Michael Dietrich with general contractor CG Schmidt says part of the plan is to move students out of old classrooms as new classrooms are complete. DiStefano says just because one classroom is ready to move students in, does not mean the work is done. In many cases, the final use of a classroom may be different from its temporary use during construction. For example, the new Family and Consumer Education room is an English room this semester. He says that also means not rushing to settle into a space before the whole project is done. The high school is expected to be complete by the beginning of the fall semester.
