Randy Murphy who is the General Contractor for the new Gymnasium and Performing Arts Center at Smoky Mountain High School met with the media and County Manager Chuck Wooten to give an update on the final stages of the construction. Murphy expects construction activities to be completed this week. Murphy also complimented the local contractors for their exceptional work. County Manager Chuck Wooten expressed happiness with the outcome of the project. The new facility has been able to combine two facilities under the same roof which is more efficient. Wooten also complimented the contractors who have paid close attention to detail which has produced a beautiful facility. There is also potential for additional on site construction based upon the site master plan. A ribbon cutting and grand opening is expected in mid April. The eleven point four million dollar building will seat 1500 for basketball and 754 for events in the Fine and Performing Arts Center.
