It has been a long journey on the construction of the Westside Fine Arts Center and the students are ready to move in as soon as it is finished. We have been so lucky to work with a wonderful school and also a wonderful contractor, Tate General Contractors.

This is Andrew here, your CahoonSteiling Architecture Marketing Coordinator and I went to visit the construction site this past week and there has been so much done since the last time I visited. When first walking into the building, I noticed the floating ceilings in the main hallway where all the awards and work will be showcased. The Westside red color inside the main hallway will make anyone want to be a Westside Warrior. The acoustical clouds had just been placed in the building and they look absolutely phenomenal. The main auditorium has just the right amount of lighting and the stage will host many great performances from the students. I know that the students have to be so excited seeing all of the undated photos in the Facebook Group and also on our Facebook Page. I am planning to do an update video over this project very soon so you can see all of the great advancements on the project.

Being apart of one of the newest banks in Jonesboro is an awesome experience. Ramsons construction has been doing a wonderful job at making this bank look it’s absolute best. Got to go out to the bank this morning and look around but didn’t get out of the truck because I didn’t have my boots with me and it was a little to muddy. Looking from the truck though, the roof looks almost completely finished and the masonry work is just looking great. About a week ago I went inside and most of the electrical work is getting completed and plumbing is looking great too. I really can’t wait to see this bank completely constructed, the landscaping done, and the pavement poured for the parking lot. This bank is a great addition to Stadium Boulevard in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Weather has been a big issue for all construction projects in Northeast Arkansas but CNI has not slowed down since they started. I was visiting there this morning and noticed that the roof is getting placed on the building and looks as if it should be done before long. Also, the interior of the building is starting to come together as the electrical and plumbing are being placed. While I was out there today, I saw a small sample of the masonry work that will go on the building and this masonry work matches the Heritage Bank look. This new Heritage Bank location is located past Hilltop in Jonesboro, AR and will be a great location for the growing area.

The weather hasn’t been easy on Tate General Contractors, Inc. as they continue to work on the fine arts center at Westside schools in Jonesboro, AR. Metal studs continue to go up and concrete sidewalks are being poured at the fine arts center. When I was there just this morning, there were many muddy areas that the workers were having to sludge through as they make their way to do some of the interior work on the building. Right now, there are a lot of electrical and plumbing work being done and the large auditorium area is still getting the metal studs placed due to a small severe weather accident last week during a night when the wind got to blowing a little too hard. The construction is looking great and this is going to be  a wonderful addition to the school.
