Exterior of Benjamin Franklin addition nearly enclosed

Two pods of four classrooms at Benjamin Franklin Elementary will soon blend in with the rest of the school as block installation is completed. Inside the eight-classroom addition, installation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems has begun. After roofing is complete to protect the building from moisture, work on interior classrooms will go into high gear.
The project reached a milestone in December when crews completed steel installation. Watch this slideshow of steel installation at the three Kirkland elementary school additions.
