Making significant progress on the building

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Making significant progress on the building

Construction activity is moving along quickly at the Badger Rock site as crews are making progress on the new Southside Elementary School.

Construction of the new building is happening in three distinct areas of the site – the north side, the south side, and the gym. On the south portion of the site, structural steel work continues, as well as metal decking for the second floor. On the north portion of the site, the concrete slab has been poured and will have structural steel soon. In the gym, work continues on the footings and foundations, which are nearing completion.

Did you know?

Structural steel is one of the most widely used building materials in the construction industry because it’s strong, durable, cost-effective, and 100% recyclable. In fact, structural steel is one of the most reused materials in the world and can be recycled over and over with no loss in its physical properties.
