Kyler Construction Group continues construction on the Ponca City High School Concert Hall with the installation of exterior tiles.
In a report to the Board of Education’s property committee, KCG stated all glass on the structure has been installed, as have doors.
The roof is complete except the parapet caps and entry canopies, the company said in its update from earlier in July.
All the rooftops have been set, and some HVAC units re running to condition the space, the report said.
Interior stud framing and gypsum board install continues, and finishing of the main ceiling will start soon.
Light fixtures in the main ceiling have been installed, and crews are installing curtain pocket steel. Electrical and plumbing rough-in continues.

The project schedule calls for substantial completion by Aug. 3; however, KCG indicates that completion will be in September. The company is trying to make up time.

The budget for the concert hall is broken into two packages. The Guaranteed Maximum price for Package 1 is $1,021,019.00; and for Package 2 it is $8,708,342.21, for a combined total of $9,729,361.21.
There have been no change orders on the project, which means the current contract amount has not changed.
Approved payments to date total $6,027,876.56, with a balance to finish, including retainage, of $3,701,484.65
Retainage is $265,282.21 and all retainage for package 1 has been paid.

Construction on the concert hall began in March 2017.
