SCHRADERGROUP Construction Progress – May 2021
As summer quickly approaches, construction work continues to accelerate on SCHRADERGROUP (SG) projects! The team has been hard at work with construction administration for a variety of projects, with some rapidly approaching final completion. A few of our construction projects underway include a new Emergency Operations Center in North Carolina, additions and renovations to the School District of Philadelphia’s Anne Frank Elementary School, the Community College of Philadelphia’s new Career and Advanced Technology Center, the new Upper Merion Area High School, and the new PennDOT District 6.0 Regional Traffic Management Center and Parking Structure, among others. A brief description of a few projects follow.
Chatham County, North Carolina – Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
School District of Philadelphia – Anne Frank Elementary School
In Philadelphia, the additions and renovations to Anne Frank Elementary School are quickly progressing. The exterior brick work is now complete and the installation of windows and ceramic tile begins. Inside, the painting is still in progress while the acoustic ceiling tile grid installation begins.
Community College of Philadelphia – Career and Advanced Technology Center
In West Philadelphia, the steel framing is complete at the new Career and Advanced Technology Center for the Community College of Philadelphia and the crane has been removed. MEP rough ins above grade have started in addition to the Concrete Masonry Unit walls. This project is scheduled for substantial completion by February 2022.
Upper Merion Area School District – Upper Merion Area High School
In King of Prussia, foundation work continues in the performing arts and gym/pool area of the new high school. In the classroom wing, concrete slabs have been poured. Out front, the curbs and asphalt have been installed in the parking lot. The most exciting update this month is that the site contractor is preparing to connect the site’s existing stream to the renovated stream area, which will be located near an outdoor amphitheater and teaching area to provide the students with science-based learning activities directly related to their campus.
Department of General Services – PennDOT District 6.0 Regional Traffic Management Center (RTMC) and Parking Structure
Another SG project in King of Prussia, the new RTMC facility’s foundation is progressing nicely. Heim Construction continues to advance the concrete footings and foundation walls. This week, waterproofing of the concrete footings began as well.
The new adjacent parking structure is swiftly approaching completion. Installation of metal panel and soffit systems at the Penthouse are underway. The glazing, batten installation, metal louvre, site sign foundation, parking striping, and asphalt paving are all complete. Additionally, electric charging stations have been installed.
As the weather improves and work continues, it is exciting to watch these projects come to fruition. We would like to thank all of our clients, consultants, contractors, and supporters for your dedication and support!
