Construction crews continue to make progress on the Capital High School renovations. Inside the building, wall and door frames are beginning to showcase the building’s new layout. Following closely behind, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection (MEPF) work is
starting. MEPF contractors are installing new systems throughout the building, including boilers and air handling units (AHUs). Several concrete pours have covered new underground plumbing work in the lower and top levels of the building.
On the exterior, the new elevator shaft has been completed. The exterior chiller pad concrete was poured and is ready for the new equipment to be installed.
- Continuing interior wall and door framing, with MEPF work following closely behind
- Installing window and roof blocking, which will provide support for the windows and roof installation later this spring
- Continuing drywall and taping on the lower levels
- Finishing remaining masonry and exterior framing work
DID YOU KNOW? Hoyt Community Park, which neighbors the new Capital High School building, was formerly a sandstone and dolomite quarry in the 1890s that provided resources for the construction of several historical buildings and street pavements throughout Madison. To align with the existing building façade and the natural park environment, the addition at Capital High School will complement the look of the wood siding on the exterior of the building.
