School entrance

Entrance to Pacific Ridge Elementary and the middle and high school on Spruce Drive.

Construction project manager Brian Hardebeck of Day CPM shared November milestones on the Seaside High School construction project.

Cumulative spending reached about $131.3 million, about on target for projected costs, Hardebeck said. “We are in a final reconciliation process with the Hoffman contract and hope to have that completed and reconciled by the end of the year.”

Among November milestones are the completion of elk-resistant vegetation and a Safe Routes to School Program Walk last Thursday. With assistance from Safe Routes to School, the project leaders — including representatives from the city, school district, Oregon Department of Transportation and Alta Planning + Design — held a walk audit to observe student arrival, according to Seaside schools Superintendent Susan Penrod. It began with observing elementary student arrival and then moved to the middle and high school campus. The Public Works Department is spearheading the program, to get an idea of traffic flows.

At the high school, gym vestibule doors are the only remaining active construction project, seeking a permit right after Thanksgiving, Hardebeck said. Subcontractors are getting on board and the schedule is being prepared.

The only items “dangling” at Pacific Ridge, Hardebeck said, are warranty items as they occur. “Basically the warranty items are anything that’s on an extended warranty as we’ve already made it through the one-year standard labor materials warranty. So nothing is ongoing at Pacific Ridge right now.”
