It all starts with foundations

Posted by Amy Higgins on 4/12/2019

Progress is steady at the sites of Ely Elementary School on Gulf Road and Northwood Campus on Abbe Road in Elyria. 

Crews finished pouring foundations at both sites. 

At Northwood, the walls are 90% complete on the new gynasium and work has started on walls in other areas of the building.

At Ely, the gym walls are about 75% complete. 

Both sites will see concrete slab work over the next several weeks as well as underground electrical and plumbing work continuing.

At the Northwood site, an asphalt ring road is in process. The road will allow more access to the site for workers and construction vehicles and will stay in place as the school is finished for traffic around the complex. 

Both sites can expect steel deliveries in April and mid-May and both gymnasiums are expected to be under roof by the end of May.

Ely, Northwood and Hamilton Elementary Schools will open in August 2020. 

The plans for the Hamilton site are in the final review phase and construction work will begin soon on the site located on 13th St. and Middle Ave.
