NEW SCHOOL TAKES SHAPE

Mecklenburg County supervisors got an advance look at the pace of construction at the new Mecklenburg County high school/middle school campus in Baskerville as the project moves forward toward a planned 2022 opening.

Superintendent of Schools Paul Nichols gave a brief Powerpoint presentation at the board’s Tuesday meeting, showing the foundation work and early construction of parts of the consolidated school. The concrete block walls have gone up at the middle school gymnasium and Central Utility Plant, and other parts of the $117 million structure, such as the high school weight room, are taking shape.

Nichols said the COVID-19 pandemic has not slowed construction at the Baskerville school complex, and before the end of the year he expects roofs to be installed on the utility building and the middle school gym.

Completion of the project is expected by Aug. 1, 2022, but Nichols said the school division expects that staff and students will move into the buildings starting in late fall of 2022.

The next major phase of the project is the installation of the sanitary sewer. Work on that should be done by the end of January, Nichols said.
