Workers are now in phase two of the project.  So far,  most of the work has been done inside.       Today, The board approved $39,000 worth of change orders for unexpected costs.       

"The majority of them were unforeseen pipes in the ground that we didn't know about.  Pipes in the wall that we didn't know about.  Just those kind of changes, it's all part of construction," said DCSS Facilities Director Bob Fowler.  

Construction is expected to be completed in May 2015.      

This project is one of several funded through a $32.5 million loan which will be paid back with education SPLOST revenue.
