One of the highlights this week at the Wadena-Deer Creek school construction site is a completed section of the goldenrod and ironspot-colored brick on the north side of the academic wing. In addition, concrete continues to be poured on the first floor of the Academic Wing. On the second floor, steel studs are being installed where classrooms will be, ductwork is being installed,and electrical work continues as well. The roof on the Academic Wing will be finished next week. Workers will then move to the gymnasium roof next. Shown here, the goldenrod (cream) and ironspot (dark brown) colored bricks are manufactured in Hebron, N.D.
Kraus-Anderson project supervisor Bill Born explains what the brick ties are sticking out of the foundation block. Before bricks are laid, workers apply an air barrier, then install 3 inches of rigid foam insulation, followed by a 1-inch air gap and then the 4-inch brick is installed.
