On March 16th, Webster Elementary school had it’s groundbreaking celebration, followed by a Career Night, where both Superintendent Michael Moore and Assistant Project Manager Frank Andrade gave a presentation on what construction workers do, what tools they use, and how one can get into construction.
Regarding working at the school Andrade said “it’s been fun working at a school, as the kids have been pretty intrigued. When we started demoing the rooms and trees on site, they were always peering through the fence, wanting to see what we were doing.”
It was awesome to be able to interact with the kiddos here at Webster Elementary and we had a really good turnout!
When completed, there will be over 36,000 square feet of renovated school space, with an additional 18,000 square feet of new building. It is set to be completed in January of 2023.
Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) also has the MiLL, a CTE training center that helps teach students trade skills, such as construction, welding, and woodworking. Through Nunn’s presentation, the student’s interest in the project, and the MiLL, we hope to see WSD3 students work for Nunn someday!
But Webster isn’t the only project happening at WSD3. On April 5th, the Widefield Parks and Recreation Center had their groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by a number of community members. It was a blustery afternoon, but despite the wind huffing and puffing, it couldn’t stop a groundbreaking! Senior Superintendent Jason Boring represented Nunn during the turning over of the dirt.
The new recreation center will be approximately 65,000 square feet. The first floor will include:
- A gymnasium containing three full-size basketball courts
- Dividing curtains
- Storage rooms
- A suspended walking track around the interior perimeter
- Two community meeting rooms with a kitchen
- A child watch/preschool area
- Teacher work rooms
- Administration areas
- Men’s and women’s locker rooms
The second floor will include:
- Two group exercise rooms
- Outdoor exercise patio
- Cardio, fitness and weight areas
- Staff offices
The project is set to be completed in May of 2023. A subsequent future phase will convert the first floor general storage to family changing rooms and add 13,860 square feet for a lap and zero entry recreation pools.
