Crews are making steady progress on the Northshore Concert Hall being built on the Inglemoor High School campus.

The exterior structure on the project was complete with the final steel beam placed on Jan. 28.

Northshore’s Chief Operating Officer Dr. Paperman said during a topping off ceremony held following the placement of the beam that he, “really hopes students will be inspired by the music they hear and by the building they are in.”

Workers are now concentrating on enclosing the building and have begun laying down the roofing materials.

The new concert hall being built by Cornerstone General Contractors will accommodate approximately 750 seats and add classroom and instruction space to the high school.

The price tag of the project is a hefty $34.5 million. It is funded by a 2018 bond and broke ground in September of 2020. It includes traffic circulation improvements and rebuilding and relocating the school’s six tennis courts. Construction is expected to be complete in the winter of 2021.
