Students, teachers and community members will be thrilled to hear that work is officially underway for capital improvements to the Ouray School building.
“Fences are up, dumpsters are in place and work has begun on the roof,” said owner’s representative Mike Fedel in a construction update to the school board during its meeting on Monday.
Crews have begun preparations for demolition of the rooftop, including taking down vents and removing mechanicals. According to a three-week schedule received Monday afternoon, Fedel said, demolition, layout and surveying work is expected to begin this week and “you will see some actual changes in the roof by the end of the week.”
