Lake Travis ISD’s Cavalier Stadium and Cavalier Activity Center are set to see a number of improvements funded by the district’s 2018 bond program.

During a March 25 board meeting, trustees discussed proposed guaranteed maximum prices with construction company Balfour Beatty for a number of renovations, including turf repairs at both sites.

Renovations at Lake Travis High School include a number of structural upgrades, such as roofing, concrete, handrails and architectural repairs, according to district information. Other repairs, such as landscaping, electrical, sprinkler systems and lockers, are also set to see improvements.

Despite coronavirus concerns, LTISD is not anticipating any delays to its construction schedule, according to LTISD Communication Director Marco Alvarado.


Balfour Beatty presented a guaranteed maximum price of $5,176,498 for the high school renovations. The board is set to take action on this item during the April 15 regular board meeting.



Included in that price is a total maximum cost of $989,623 for turf repairs at both locations, which will be completed by a subcontractor, Hellas Construction Inc. Turf repairs at the high school are anticipated to be completed prior to the Lake Travis High School graduation.

The existing turf is about eight years old, according to Johnny Hill, assistant superintendent for business, financial and auxiliary services. Hill stated that the turf should last approximately 10 years and that he was disappointed by the current turf’s lack of longevity.

During the same meeting, the board also discussed a guaranteed maximum price of $672,562 for repairs at the district’s educational development center.

The projects to be completed by Flynn Construction include repairs to the parking lot, security vestibule station, fine arts sound abatement and the addition of a domestic water line.

Funding for the list of renovations was previously approved through the district’s 2018 bond program, and official costs will be approved by the district at a later date.
