LUBBOCK, Texas -

A center piece of the soon-to-be Buddy Holly Hall is in place.

Crews have secured a 155 foot, 45 ton steel truss, a space frame that spans the entire lobby.

It's the largest and heaviest piece that goes into the construction.

Just the basement alone has taken about 7,250 yards of concrete.

"Currently, this is going to take 19 sequences of steel, right now we're on the fifth sequence of steel, so that gives you an idea of about how much more steel is going to be coming onto the project. This is going to be one of the best projects in Lubbock and one of the coolest venues to attend, so we're very excited to be a part of this," Construction Superintendent Sasha Mandikon said.

The grand opening of the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences is set for early 2020.
