Construction Update: October 2018

Posted September 27, 2018


District and project leaders hosted a Public Design Input Session at Prairie Lane on September 25. As part of our 2015 Facilities Master Plan, Prairie Lane will undergo extensive renovations and expansion, with construction beginning the Summer of 2019. TACKArchitects and Project Advocates facilitated the meeting, gathering community input on wants and needs for the project. The Design Advisory Committee will continue to meet throughout this fall.



Construction continues on the new Swanson Elementary.  Foundations are ongoing, underground Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing is ongoing.  Masonry walls on the North side of the project site continues to be installed. Structural steel erection is scheduled to re-commence late September.



The Westside Boys & Girls Club project at Westbrook, scheduled to last 14 months, is back on time! Rain slowed construction over the summer, but dry weather has helped crews this fall. Underground MEP is ongoing, and structural walls continue to be constructed.  Westside has also added a drop off/pick-up area and additional parking on the east side of the building, and the city of Omaha completed crosswalk improvements on both Robertson Drive and Western Avenue.



We invite you to a public Open House at Westside Middle School to check out the now complete extensive renovations to the facility! District leaders and project leaders will be on hand to answer questions Monday October 8 from 6:00pm-8:00pm.
