Exciting changes are underway at Lincoln and Underwood Elementary Schools! The first concrete has been poured at each of the sites to create the new buildings' foundations (footings).
At Lincoln, the foundations for the new building will require an estimated 468 cubic yards of concrete. Sitting atop the foundations will be a concrete slab, commonly referred to in construction as Slab on Grade (S.O.G), that will require an estimated 341 cubic yards of concrete. Together the foundations and Slab on Grade will create the base for the rest of the new building to sit upon. Within the concrete, to strengthen it, steel reinforcing bars will also be set. Steel reinforcing bar is typically measured in tons. The necessary amount of rebar estimated for Lincoln Elementary School is nearly 46 tons!
