April Update

Construction of the new Senior School and Fitness Centre is coming along! The interior wall partitions on the first and second floor have been installed and the drywall will be going up any day. Contractors are currently installing the plumbing, sprinkler systems and electrical wiring on all levels. Over the past couple of weeks workers have been installing the roof system and all the windows on the courtyard side have been installed! It’s such an exciting time here at SJR!

Exterior: The front of the new Senior School viewed from the upper parking lot; all these windows will let in lots of natural light and present a beautiful view of the campus grounds!

Exterior, roof: Construction of the Parapet Wall that surrounds the perimeter of the roof.

Exterior, roof: 12” of blue installation is being installed over the roof deck, yup, that should keep the heat in during winter and out during the summer.
