Seismic Upgrade Ahead of Schedule
This project is a major seismic upgrade of two of the blocks of Ruth King Elementary School. Currently ahead of schedule, the project is on track for completion next month October 2017, three months earlier than the School District’s required completion date of January 1, 2018.
The School is wood frame construction originally built in 1952, with additions completed in 1953, 1957, 1961, 1973, and 1982. The blocks to be seismically upgraded under this project include the two-storey North Classroom Block and the Gymnasium Block. The existing school is remaining operational at full capacity as construction activities are underway and Kinetic is providing a safe, secure school environment for all students, teacher/staff and the general public.
