CHIPLEY - The Washington County School Board heard from Jacksonville-based Perry-McCall Construction about progress on efforts to replace Vernon Elementary School's "Building 6" when they met in regular session Monday, June 16.

"A lot of work has gone on in two weeks, said Woodrow Foster of Perry-McCall in his report to the board. "The roof is on, the building has been dried in, and the holding pond is 90 percent complete."

The firm also reports the masonry block is finished, including the installation of all hollow metal door frames.

All brick masonry is also complete, and ,mechanical, electrical, and plumbing above the ceiling rough is 50 percent complete.

"What I like about this project is it doesn't look piece-milled," said Board Member Susan Roberts. "It looks like it belongs there and compliments the rest of the school."

The building is on track to be complete in time for students to utilize it for the new school year this fall.

Board members also addressed construction of the new Kate M. Smith Elementary School in Chipley, deciding to use a construction manager for the project.
