If you drive by Madison High School you’ll notice many big changes. The original front entrance has been removed as have the original gym building, theatre and the cafeteria. Prior to their demolition, bricks, bleachers and the gym wood flooring were salvaged for re-use later on in the project.
Hazardous material abatement has been completed and extensive remodeling is now underway. The existing concrete structure is being modified and supplemented with new structural elements to bring the building up to current seismic standards.
In the new Performing Arts wing, the orchestra pit is in place. The main building pad has also been poured, preparing the way for construction of the black box theater, band and choir classrooms. In the new gym, the foundations are underway and the masonry walls should start to rise in late January or early February.
