#WorksiteWednesday The Mead School District Performing Arts and Athletic Complex is taking shape and will be completed this fall.
#WorksiteWednesday The North Bank Playground Site is taking shape. Aerial imagery shows the new roof on the picnic pavilion, the graded basketball courts, curbing around the playground, the concrete wall separating the playground and the skate park, the west wall of the O&M building going up and a very busy construction site. Rough grading and curbing at the parking lot has also been started.
The beautiful metal siding is up at the Bret Johnson Orthodontics new building on Hawthorne & Nevada. The interior finishing work is also underway and we can’t wait for his patients to see the new space!
As the War Memorial Field nears completion, there is huge progress every day. The numbers and lines are being cut into the turf surface, and the sports fields are taking shape. Once completed, the artificial turf will be ready for baseball, softball, soccer, and football, and the recreation department will also offer lacrosse play. The field design includes a new goalpost system with increased safety technology for the staff raising and lowering the posts between seasons.
Here are some construction photos from the Great Flood-themed North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. ID Sculpture is on-site hand-carving some of the playground climbing walls. They have built plastic tents over the sculpting areas and have a team of 4-6 people in each tent scoring cutting and sculpting the rock to make it reflect our local geology. The skatepark, with two bowls, is also taking shape. Once they start pouring concrete and forming the bowls, the entire process will take about three weeks.
#WorksiteWednesday Meanwhile, at the War Memorial Field improvement project in Sandpoint, Idaho, turf installation is underway. This field is going to serve the region well and for many years to come.
Check out this timelapse from Baker Construction & Development, Inc. showing the site-cast concrete panels going up at the Huntwood Cabinets warehouse expansion in Liberty Lake. There were a total of 30 panels – 25 feet wide by 32 feet high. They make it look easy!
