Site and building projects at Magnolia have been underway since the last quarter of 2018 and are progressing nicely.
Grounds Update (Exterior):
Crews have been preparing the grounds around the buildings for proper plumbing, drainage, soil composition, utility lines, etc. Some trees have been removed out of necessity, but several new varieties will be planted as soon as possible. Driveways have been added for access to the Butlercrest Street side of the property.
Building Remodel Update:
A significant amount of progress has been made on the remodeling of the buildings. Half of the classroom walls are in place, framing for the classroom hallway is complete, light fixtures have been installed, and preliminary plumbing work is finished. Most recently, new windows have been installed in the administration building. Also, new doors are scheduled to be installed in the coming weeks. At that point, major electrical and gas lines will be run, and additional progress will be made on the installation of the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system.
Please note: at this time, the construction area is closed to the public. This is for safety and so that the various crews on site can continue to make swift progress. A temporary chain-link fence is currently in place for this purpose.
Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue work on this project!
