Over the next few weeks, some of the key people involved with the venue will give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the last-minute push to ensure the doors open on time.
Tom Doyle is the project director at the Hydro and is overseeing all construction issues.
He is working with the building contractor to make sure it is ready for Glasgow to welcome Rod Stewart on September 30.
Mr Doyle said: "Externally, the arena's distinctive ETFE cladding - the special plastic film originally developed for the space industry -is almost complete and will undergo testing over the coming weeks.
"Keep your eyes peeled and you may see it glowing one of 12.8million different colours.
"Progress is also continuing on the hard landscaping with paving being laid on a curve to match the building and the foundations going down for the digital 'totem' poles, which will display sponsorship and signage.
"You also may have seen topsoil being layered onto a green bank - this is not a sports track, nor is it grass.
"The 'skirt' is made up of thousands of honeysuckle plants, like the green wall on the Olympic Stadium in London.
"With more than 600 workers on site each day, the internal fit-out is going full steam ahead. The final floor in the arena bowl is completed and work is continuing on bar and food outlets, toilets, merchandise counters, cloakrooms and artists' dressing rooms.
"Seats are flying in at a fantastic rate and will be up to capacity before the month end."
Mr Doyle revealed that almost 7800 cubic metres of concrete - enough to fill three Olympic-sized swimming pools - had been used during contruction, as well as more than 8000 tonnes of steel.
He added: "At its highest point, the roof of The Hydro is the same height as the top mast of the Glenlee berthed outside the Riverside Museum and twice as high as Queen Street station."
Next week we will be meeting Ross Easton and John McNeil, responsible for hospitality and catering at the SSE Hydro.
