Walls go up on Smith-Cotton addition


Eric Kullman places a layer of mortar on the concrete block wall at the multipurpose classroom addition to Smith-Cotton High School Tuesday afternoon. Workers from Treuner Masonry have been laying the walls to the structure for the last three weeks. The bearing walls will stand at a height of 31 feet, 8 inches on the north wall to 30 feet on the outer walls to allow for the pitch of the roof. Robbie Paul, Septagon Construction Management Inc. site manager, said the work had been going smoothly on the project especially since the weather had been cooperating the last couple of months.


Michael Merrick of All Pro Electrical Technology Inc. positions a wooden form for electrical floor boxes prior to the concrete floor being poured for the new gym floor at the S-C addition. Workers will pour half the floor Friday, weather permitting. The new classroom will be used as an auxiliary gym and will feature north side bleachers, six basketball goals and standards for a volleyball court. The addition is expected to be completed prior to the start of school this fall.


Charles Lavin walks on the decking to the scaffold Tuesday afternoon as he prepares to move additional mortar before setting concrete block on the north wall of one of two additions to Smith-Cotton. Good weather has allowed various tradesmen to make good progress on the new multipurpose addition as well as additional classrooms behind the freshman wing of the high school.
