Phase 1 of the CHSS Building Envelope Project in Prince Rupert behind schedule

Phase 1 of the Building Envelope Project at Charles Hays Secondary School is now expected to be completed two-weeks later than expected.

Although work with the Building Envelope Project at Charles Hays Secondary School is still going strong, School District 52 recently announced a revised target date for Substantial Performance of Phase 1, which is now expected to be on April 27, 2012.

School District 52 Secretary-Treasurer Cam McIntyre says the set back is for cautionary reasons.

“The current phase involves putting on the new siding, and the contractors have been back and forth trying to ensure that their methodology [works correctly], and that it all stays water tight,” Explained McIntyre.

In Phase 1, all the demolition required for the project is complete, as well as the steel stud installation and repair. The wall sheathing and self-adhered membrane application are 90 per cent complete, with the z-girt installation being about 85 per cent complete. Installation of windows on the school are about 85 per cent complete, with testing of the windows scheduled to take place in the near future.

As for Phase 2 of the project, scaffolding set-up is complete, with block demolition being 75 per cent complete and ahead of schedule.

The budget for repairs to the school’s building envelope is estimated to be $8.6 million. The Province has budgeted $7 million in this high-priority building envelope repair, and the Prince Rupert school district will contribute the remaining $1.6 million.

The project went underway last fall, and despite the set back, is still expected to be completed in October of 2012.
