The five projects underway in the first phase of the facilities master plan for Upper Arlington Schools are quickly taking shape. Contractors continued to make great progress during September and into October on these projects.

The new academic wing is quickly rising along Ridgeview Road. The concrete foundations are nearly completed, and crews are continuing to install structural steel columns, beams and decking. Masonry walls are also progressing on several of the athletic and arts spaces.
Crews are continuing to put the finishing touches on the renovation project for Marv Moorehead Memorial Stadium.

The footing and foundation work on the new academic addition is nearly completed. Structural steel arriving will be arriving in late October, with installation scheduled to begin in early November.
New Greensview Elementary School project
The steel frame and the concrete work on the new academic area is nearly completed, and the roof is in place on the new gym and single-story mechanical rooms. Metal stud walls are being installed on the exterior of the structural framing in preparation for brick veneer work.
