Thanks to the $2.5 million Oregon Seismic Improvement Grant that Centennial was awarded, seismic upgrade work has started in the basement at Pleasant Valley Elementary School. Most of what’s happening now is preparation work, as shown in the photo below.
Once school is dismissed for the summer, new rigid plywood and shear walls will be installed at both floor levels. Also, additional anchors will be placed to further connect the floors, walls, and roof together. This summer is also when the brick replacement on the exterior of the building will begin. We’ll continue to keep you updated as the construction progresses!
