Since August, Martel Construction has been installing all aspects of the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center in what will be a new 282-seat auditorium.

Electricians, plumbers, sheet rockers, concrete workers and a host of construction trades are working daily to complete the facility, which is housed in the old Ophir School gym. Currently the demolition is complete, and crews are working on framing the walls and installing wiring for sound, lights and communications.

Martel projects it will be complete by early January.

The Big Sky School District is excited about the future for both the community and the students of the school system as we will have a premier performance hall for all to enjoy.
