The construction project at the Luxemburg-Casco High School will have one of the busiest days ever on Monday. Starting at 6 am on Monday, about 50 cement truckloads will be delivered and poured for the school gymnasium. The six-inch deep cement flooring will need 463 yards of concrete to cover the surface floor area. Luxemburg-Casco School District Superintendent Glenn Schlender explains how the construction crews will work it with the walls of the gymnasium already up.
Schlender says the recent heavy rainfalls have slowed down the middle school addition process because of the muddy conditions. He adds that the ceiling decking on the hallway between the new gym and the existing high school building is being worked on. Brickwork is currently being laid in the new middle school technical education area and a roof over the new wrestling center is being constructed. No timelines are set with weather challenges being faced but the new gymnasium should be completed in early January, according to Schlender.
