BEND, OR -- Reconstruction of the gym at Highland Magnet at Kenwood School is expected to be finished and open in the next two weeks, but the project hasn't gone quite as planned. 

 

The gym is constructed with several rows of split face block at the foundation, transitioning to dark red brick. But, several loads of the wrong-colored brick were delivered to the site and installed before anyone noticed. Workers tried to use stain to make them match, but the job superintendent for Kirby Nagelhout tells KBND News that didn't work; and, in the end, the mis-matched material was ripped out and replaced.  
 
There was no cost to taxpayers for the mistake, and the delay was not significant. The gym was rebuilt after massive snow caused the roof to collapse, in January 2017.
