The rear wall of the Super Sabre Memorial room is drywalled and primed for paint and air conditioning was turned on August 10th. Remaining wall studs and drywall is the next step which is planned to start when the Portage Lakes Career classes resume school in September. Then painting of the room, LED lighting installation, electrical wall outlets, security system, carpeting. Some of this will be completed by students from the construction program and others by professional tradesmen.
Heating is complete as well as fire suppression system. We are looking at end of 2020/Spring of 2021 for final completion of all displays. Remember MAPS is renovating the entire second floor that includes meeting rooms, bathrooms, 250 seat banquet room and full professional kitchen to support events. In todays world everything has to be build to acceptable construction codes and the building was built in 1953 so there are many hoops to jump through. It is a big project and when complete it is going to be amazing.
