Construction continues, but steel won’t be visible for at least three more months

By Jennifer Garcia

For the past several months, Diamond Drive has become a tangle of construction, with long lines of traffic at peak hours and student pedestrians from Los Alamos High School attempting to navigate the obstructions.

Add to that the construction going on at LAHS, and it seems like a recipe for disaster.

Not only do the students have to be mindful of avoiding construction sites off campus, they have to avoid them on campus. Despite the would-be problems, construction teams from both projects seem to be making progress.

During Thursday night’s School Board meeting at Piñon Elementary, Sanjay Engineer of the architectural firm FBP, gave an update on the construction at the high school. He said a lot of work has been completed over the past eight months and that all entities involved in the project have worked together to ensure that the project stays on budget. Members were presented with a guaranteed maximum price of $22.6 million.

Justin Stoverink, the project  manager for Flintco, said his company has been working on the cafeteria renovations, delivering the portable classrooms, putting infrastructure in the portables and demolishing old buildings on campus.
