school on the site of the former Lacey Center is a little behind schedule due to the bad weather, says Joseph Krzywicki, the on-site field construction representative for Fairfax County Public Schools. The construction site is at the end of Crest Drive in the Broyhill Crest neighborhood in Annandale.
About three-quarters of the holes have been dug for the 96 geothermal pipes, and the underground plumbing has been installed. “We’re ready to put the on-grade slab in as soon as the weather breaks,” Krzysicki says. “As soon as the slab is in, we’ll start seeing some real progress.” In about a week or two, depending on the weather, the water line from the school will be connected to the water feed under Brookcrest Place.
