MAPS 3 Convention Center more than half-way complete

With less than a year until scheduled completion, construction on the $168-million MAPS 3 Convention Center is making significant strides. One of the most noticeable changes is there are no longer large cranes on the site, so all the steel has been put into place, said Kevin Koch, senior associate with Populous architecture firm. Populous worked with Oklahoma City-based GSB, Inc. on the center's design. ADG, Inc. manages all the MAPS 3 construction projects.

The Downtown Convention Center is about 65 percent complete, said David Todd, the city's program manager for the Metropolitan Area Projects. Construction of the building is scheduled to be finished mid-to-late September, 2020.

The biggest undertaking on the site this week has been pouring the 8-inch thick concrete floor for the first-level 200,000-square-foot exhibit hall. Koch said the concrete pouring starts at midnight and continues until the mid-morning.
