Primary school construction is on track
Project team has been completing electrical and mechanical work this month
Work is 86 percent complete at the new $28 million Trillium Creek Primary School, according to the bond project team. The school is one of two new schools (the other is Lowrie Primary in Wilsonville) being funded by a 2008 capital bond approved by voters of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.
This month the project team has been doing electrical and mechanical work inside, as well as installing wall insulation and sheetrock.
The exterior work includes weatherproofing and the installation of metal siding, brick veneer and ceramic tiling.
Also, the construction crew is installing a concrete sidewalk and a covering for the sidewalk and play structure. Additionally, workers have been planting trees in the wetlands, while removing invasive plant species.
The goal is to finish the 67,000-square-foot building by June so the district can furnish it for a fall opening. The school is being built to add future classrooms for up to 500 students, though the district expects to open it with around 300 students.
Trillium Creek officially gained school board approval for the geographic boundaries that will funnel its first student body to the school. The school board approved redrawn neighborhood boundary lines at its March 5 meeting in preparation for bringing the school online this fall.
The adjusted boundaries will shift students from Willamette, Sunset and Cedaroak Park schools to Trillium Creek.
