SF School District Says Renovations Will Finish On Time

SF School District Says Renovations Will Finish On Time
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It is crunch time for construction workers building up or sprucing up Sioux Falls schools. The School District took on 15 renovation and construction projects this summer. Operational Services Manager Jeff Kreiter said was a lot of work for three months.

"It was one of the shortest summers we've had," Kreiter said.

If you drive by some of the buildings, including Eugene Field, Garfield, and Axtell Park -- you will see there are still workers and machines. Kreiter said the major work for those projects will finish by the time school starts on Monday.

"It's going to be safe. It's going to be ready to go for the kids," Kreiter said.

He also said workers will most likely need to finish a few minor details at certain buildings, including Axtell Park. This is also be carpet and floor work in Eugene Field, and work on a music room in Garfield.

"Might happen next week. It's not an essential room, it's not a classroom, but I think that's going to be really close to Friday, too," Kreiter said.

In some cases, the interior work will be blocked off from the rest of school, so it does not disrupt the students. Kreiter said any work that would create a lot of noise will be done before or after the school day. The rain in June did create a few challenges, but Kreiter said everything is on track and under budget. 

"I think everybody's going to be happy with (finished projects)," Kreiter said.

There is a penalty for each project that is not completed on time. Kreiter said the contractors could be charged a few hundred dollars a day if a project continues past its deadline.
