LA CRESCENTA — The drone of construction at Crescenta Valley High School gave way to crews moving on-site temporary classrooms as work on repairing another water-damaged building began.
Construction began on Building 1000 about a month ago, and now workers are on to Building 6000, near the gym that housed the weight room. The repairs are pegged to shoddy construction during a $41-million remodeling project financed by the voter-approved Measure K bond.
The original construction was completed in 2002, but heavy rains caused leaks in several buildings. A review of the construction commissioned by the Glendale Unified School District found windows with gaps between the frames and the structures, as well as cracks in the plaster walls that were visible on the exterior of the buildings.
