Construction frenzy

Work continues to complete the new Worthington Learning Center/Gymnastics facility by its anticipated August deadline.

WORTHINGTON — Construction crews were busy at work Tuesday in the future Worthington Learning Center and Gymnastics facility.

Approaching the deadline for August's construction completion, there is a frenzy of activity inside the new building as construction crews install windows, HVAC systems and fire sprinklers, do painting and complete other tasks.

Construction on the approximately 45,000-square-foot facility on Crailsheim Drive has been frustrating, as the weather has hindered progress since the May 2018 groundbreaking. Construction completion was originally slated for March 1, but was altered to Aug. 1 due to frequent, weather-related delays, District 518 reported in early May.

Due to the exceptionally snowy and wet winter and spring, concrete has yet to be poured next to the site for vehicle access and parking.

Much of the gymnastics and gymnasium portions of the facility now appear nearly complete and are awaiting flooring.
