Working on footings and foundations for the new building

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Working on footings and foundations for the new building

Exciting changes are happening at the Badger Rock site as crews are making progress on the new Southside Elementary School construction!

Construction crews started excavation work in preparation for footings and foundations to be installed. As excavation work progresses on the site, workers have made significant progress on forming footings and pouring concrete on the south side of the building. Workers have also started forming the building’s foundation walls to prepare for the first concrete wall pour this week.

Did you know?

There are many types of footings and foundations that are used in building construction depending on the size, location, and other site factors. The strip footings at Southside Elementary School are constructed using concrete and will provide a solid, level base for the foundation walls.
