Pictures of Progress at Jefferson High School
Just a small look at some of the construction here at Jefferson. This page will be updated periodically as work progresses.

Work begins in earnest as glass in the hallway comes down and the ceiling tiles are removed...
In order to begin construction, the classroom is stripped down to the bare concrete.
To make room for the plumbing, a small portion of the hallway wall is removed.
Duct work for the geothermal heating and cooling system is installed. It will be covered up by a drop ceiling later on.
For many students and staff, the bare hallways under construction are a striking sight.
Workers cordon off a portion of the foyer in order to drill a hole in the floor.
A view of the construction from the foyer balcony.
This hole will allow crews to run pipes in from the wells drilled around campus.
The cleaned up remains of a once-large hole in the ground. This sight will be common for the next few years.
To accomodate the new outside walls that will eventually be installed, concrete pads had to be poured.
Another view of the concrete supports outside the math wing.
The small object in the distance that looks like a fire hydrant is actually one of the wells dug earlier in the fall.
Just one of the many wells now on campus.
As rooms are worked on, their contents are being stored on the cafeteria patio...now closed to student use.
Fortunately, the move that many classes will have to make is temporary (just like these storage pods!).

The windows in the hallway are gone (mostly due to safety in case of tornado), and the dry walls go up.

To prevent the new flooring from getting damaged, construction workers laid down heavy wooden mats.
Duct work runs down the middle of the room. It will soon provide heating and cooling for teachers and students.
Another view behind the false ceiling.
This photo shows what was placed in the gap made in the hallway wall. Also, a unit for moving air (the large box, top-center) has been installed.
The false ceiling scaffold has been installed, soon the tiles will follow.
The industrial wing is next...and the flooring has been removed in preparation.
