Don Roundtree, a consultant for the Sulphur Springs ISD’s Auditorium Renovation Project, gave the school board an update Monday night. He said demolition work was basically finished inside. Outside drainage work with piping is scheduled to start this weekend. When finished, water will run away from the building, not toward it.
The ceiling has been removed to allow for duct work and other addendum such as fire protection lines and plumbing may be placed. New ceiling will replace the old. The new ceiling will provide the appropriate accustics to ensure the sound clarity. Excavation is currently being conducted along the east and west sides of the auditorium to allow waterproofing of the walls. A new drain line will also be installed along those areas. Electrical transformers will be moved when lines are rerouted.
