Playground Design & Artwork | 23-June-2015

A joint meeting of the Public Building & Site Commission and the Board of Education was held June 23 at the Municipal Center to hear and review updates on the construction and the latest design work.

Construction Team Gears Up | 7-April-2015
The sub-contractors were invited to a Partnering event, co-hosted by Consigli Construction and Svigals + Partners, on April 7 at Edmond Town Hall. The event provided a unique opportunity for contractors to meet with members of the design and construction administration team and learn how the current plans represent the community participation in the design process. Site construction activities have been underway since October 2014, and now that the remaining construction contracts have been awarded, the entire construction team is gearing up for an intense push for the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2015. Read about monthly construction activities and see construction photos on the Construction page.
