Contractors Rushing to Finish Ramstad

Posted: Updated:

With each day, the new Erik Ramstad Middle School is moving closer to completion.

Kelli Volk visited with some of the project contractors who say the new building is on a smooth trajectory for a Monday open.

Contractors for the new Erik Ramstad Middle School can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.

In just a matter of days, classes will be in session at the new school.

The student and teachers aren't the only ones happy to see this major project coming to light.

(Paul Kramer, Project Manager, Anderson Wade & Whitty)It's pretty rewarding. The process, obviously with the devastation the flood left behind, unfortunate circumstances obviously, but it's pretty rewarding to be a part of the design team, to work on the new school within the city of Minot."

With the major work complete, contractors are working down to the wire to put the final touches on the new facility.

(Paul Kramer, Project Manager, Anderson Wade & Whitty)They've basically done all of their walk-through and final inspections. Now, there's just little minor details that they're working with the contractors that they're trying to complete so students and faculty are ready for school come Monday."

(Charlie Monson, Electrical Engineer, Prarie Engineering)"Everything's operating. All the lighting's working, we're just making the final adjustments and programming at the moment and just doing the final adjustments before school opens up this coming Monday."

The walls are looking alive with the final strokes of paint.

(Beau Pilgrim, Painter Foreman, Fransen Decorating)"I have a couple floors in the receiving area left to do. I'll have to come back over the Christmas break to finish them. I have a little bit of touch up left, which I'm hoping to get done tomorrow.

Touching up is the name of the game at this point.

But, it's a pretty good spot to be in you ask those who have helped make this project possible.

(Paul Kramer, Project Manager, Anderson Wade & Whitty)"There's going to be a lot of cleaning and the little details that need to be completed. So, I'm sure it will be nip and tuck, but we're excited and we're confident that they'll be ready on Monday."

Come Monday, the Ramstad Rockets will see their new school in a new light."

In Minot, Kelli Volk, KX News.

Kramer says work will most-likely continue through the rest of the week.
