Members of the Glasgow Board of Education received an update on the construction of the new high school as well as the demolition of the old building at Monday’s meeting at the central office.
Alliance Corporation Project Manager Scott Holt updated the board on a more specific time period as to when the school will be completed and turned over to district officials.
“We’re really down to doing all of the final testing and the final cleaning,” Holt said. “We do have some touch up things to do here and there. Right now we are mainly concentrating on the band room, auditorium, locker room and the exterior. The academic wing and administration area are very close.”
Holt said the goal is to turn the building over to district officials within the next seven to 10 days.
“As far as getting in, like I said at the last board meeting, we’re shooting for July16,” Holt said. “The building inspector is coming Wednesday and hopefully everything will be good by July 16.”
Holt said the demolition of the old building is still more than a week away.
“We should be able to get started on that the week after next,” Holt said.
