Alta CSD tornado safe room updates

Most of our patrons have probably seen articles in the newspaper, or on TV news, about the "grand opening" of the tornado safe room in Alta. This event was held on Dec. 15 to celebrate the school taking possession of the building after the substantial completion date.

I have had the privilege of being a part of a number of building projects and remodeling projects in schools, and this is the first one that was actually "substantially complete" on the originally-scheduled date. This is due, in large part, to the great work of our architect (WWA), the general contractor (L&L Builders) and all of the sub-contractors working together as a team.  

"Substantially complete" does not mean totally done. There are a few items left to compete. The newly remodeled elementary office is totally complete, and we have begun the process of moving in. Elementary office operations and the newly-constructed main entrance will be in use immediately after the Christmas break.
