The Campbellsburg Community Center is inching closer to completion.

Harold Broughton told the city councilors Monday night that 60 percent of the building’s exterior metal is now on, and should be completely on by the end of the weekend.

Tuesday, crews were expected to install the center’s windows and doors. The center’s HVAC system is almost ‘roughed in,’ Broughton said, adding that “they’ve got some air ducts for (fresh air inflow)… but they couldn’t do that until the (exterior) metal was on.”

Broughton also said that about half of the center’s electrical work was done — with some work on hold until the center has its doors.

Crews have been working on the building for 27 straight days, Broughton said, and some work had to wait until the exterior metal was on.

A building inspector, he added, has given the crew approval to “go ahead and cover up inside.”

To date, $54,000 has been spent on the project.

“Hopefully, when I come next month, we’ll be drywalling inside,” Broughton told council members, adding that the project’s architect “was shocked at the progress that’s been made.”
