Construction and technology advance at LCSC

Lebanon — Lebanon Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor didn’t want to let the high school juniors and seniors paint their parking spots this year.

The parking lot had just been repaved and remarked.

“I looked out the window, and it was just pristine,” he said at Tuesday’s school board meeting. “It looked so good that I didn’t want to even put a car on it.”

Though he wasn’t in favor of the painting at first, now he wouldn’t change a thing, he said. He explained that when he looked at a rendering of the remodeled Lebanon High School with the clean parking lot months ago, he thought, “Wow, that’s a really nice school building.” But looking at a photo of that same view now, with colorful parking spots, his thought is slightly different.

“Now I think, ‘this a really nice Lebanon school building,’” he said. “There is student ownership, staff ownership, community ownership and community pride in this. And I don’t think you can put a project together and say that with anything else.”

The Lebanon Community School Corp. school board heard Tuesday an update on the project from Oliver Haste, job superintendent with Shiel Sexton, which is managing the $40 million corporationwide building project. During this first phase at the high school, Haste said there have been 123,000 square feet built or renovated, 130,000 man hours worked, 72,000 pounds of rebar used, 85 miles of electrical and fire alarm wiring used, and 41 miles of data and intercom wiring installed.
