From top to bottom, inside and out, the new Hunt takes shape

Smoke, haze and lightning storms haven’t stopped the crew at the new Hunt Middle School from moving forward on the project. After the stormy weather cleared, workers jumped right back in to complete soffit framing in the science, Career and Technical Education and general classrooms.

Siding and large storefront windows are in plain view if you drive by the construction site at Mildred and S. 10th. And you can’t miss the raised roof trusses at the covered play area, new gutters and exterior stairs at the general classroom spaces.

On the rooftop, workers recently installed mechanical units, eave flashing and roof membrane over classroom areas. Also happening atop the gym are skylight curbs.

Interior framing and doors are in development on the first and second floors at the administration area and library, while drywall is going up at the science and general classrooms spaces.

Masonry interior and exterior walls are now complete in the gym, music and stage areas and are almost complete in the locker room area.

Electrical equipment installation in the building starts in the next few weeks.
