It has been an extremely productive and exciting week over at our Nuckols Rd campus. All of the new framing has now been installed and classrooms are starting to take shape.

Every week our new building is starting to look more and more like a Northstar campus!

Do you remember the picture with the orange spray paint last week? This is a picture of that same area.

The concrete has been cut and the ground has been dug up so new plumbing can officially go in. We are getting closer and closer to demo and plumbing being complete!

Classroom Demo with Spray Paint

Construction Update #2

Classroom Demo with Spray Paint
Picture displays classroom wall taken down with just framing exposed. Orange spray paint outlines area on floor.

Two weeks in and the demolition phase is in full swing. Walls have come down, framing is going up, and progress is continuing to be made. 

Do you have a guess as to what that orange spray paint is doing on the floor? 

It notifies workers that new plumbing will be installed in that area. In this picture, it shows where the plumbing will go to host a new sink in the classroom.

Can you believe these pictures are of the same classroom? 

Major changes are already visible throughout our new campus just one week into renovations. 

Special shout out to our general contractor, UrbanCore and our friends over at EDC for their project management in making sure everything stays on timeline. 

Stay tuned for further updates!
