Weekly Update SEPTEMBER 16, 2022
GLHS Construction and Floor Plan Updates
Our Phase Two Design Team has been very busy over the summer discussing, collaborating, designing, and reconfiguring layouts to bring us one step closer to the final floor plan for the new Lincoln High School. Although we are navigating the same supply chain, cost and labor challenges being experienced across the construction industry, we are excited to see progress on all of our Phase Two Projects.
Assistant Superintendent Jill Elliott gave an informative GLHS Construction and Floor Plan Update at the GJPS Finance & Facilities Meeting on September 13, 2022. Please watch that portion of the meeting in the video below.
