Capital High School is on track to be complete this summer, and the great progress continues to push the project towards its finish date. With the warmer weather, there has been significant work done on the exterior. The cast stone wall on the elevator addition has started and several window frames and windows have been installed throughout the building. A 500-ton crane was used to set the new exterior chiller unit on the east side of the school.
Inside the building, finishes are being installed in the lower levels. In the bathrooms, painting, and floor and wall tile has started, and polished concrete flooring is ongoing in the corridors. On the first floor, above ceiling work continues as painting and polished concrete flooring get started this week.

- Continuing painting throughout the building
- Laying down carpet/resilient flooring and rubber base
- Installing cabinetry and countertops on lower levels
