In the weeks since our students finished school in June, it has been full steam ahead on the construction site. If you are following our developments from a distance, or you have not been by recently, here is an update of recent developments:Internal Progress
From the outside, the building appears near completion. The masonry is finished and the windows are installed. Once inside, you discover teams of craftspeople framing the spaces and installing drywall on the ground floor.On the second floor the details are coming together, and it won’t be long before the dust settles and we can see the details in the polished concrete floors. Exciting!Every day there is a noticeable development, so we are often donning our hardhats and steel toe boots to sneak peeks.External Development
In order to connect Richland’s expanded facility with the Town of Richmond Hill’s amenities, large trenches were excavated from Yonge Street, running through the parking lot to the building. We were impressed with the speed at which these trenches were created, and subsequently closed in again. We cannot thank the crews working onsite enough for their attention to detail and commitment to the schedule.Over the coming weeks, the same process will take place along the southern border of the school property from Yonge Street, to connect us to the Town’s systems. Richland’s Campus Crew of Mr. Rafael and Mr. Fernando have been working non-stop to ensure our learning spaces are preserved through this process. We are so grateful to have such a strong team!We promise to share more photos with you through Inquiring Minds. Thank you for following our journey of transformation ~ growing our current facility to include a 20,000 sq. ft. expansion to create a space unlike all the other private schools in Richmond Hill. We’re creating a space that embodies Richland’s 21st Century learning experience.
