Heading into the summer of 2020, Lake Travis ISD is already discussing construction projects scheduled for next year's summer break.

Calling it the last big push on the 2018 bond program, Johnny Hill assistant superintendent for business, financial and auxiliary services presented a list of upcoming projects during a May 20 board meeting.

The list included recommended architects and engineering firms as well as estimated total costs. The agenda item was for discussion only and the board is set to take action during the June 17 board meeting.

A larger project includes one at Cavalier Drive, with site and paving costs estimated at approximately $2.5 million, according to district information.

“It could easily be disruptive if we don’t plan in advance,” Hill said.



The project would be included in a list of improvements at Lake Travis High School estimated at $5.206 million. The recommended contract is with Pfluger Architects.

Fields Architects was recommended for projects totaling $1.974 million at Serene Hills Elementary School and West Cypress Hills Elementary School. Projects include constructing an ADA compliant playground at West Cypress and Serene Hills.

The company may also be contracted for irritation system additions at a number of campuses for $113,315.

The district is also considering contracting Pfluger Architects for the construction of a future elementary school, referred to as Elementary School No. 8 for $2.845 million. A contract is also being considered with Pfluger Architects for minor renovations at the administration building totaling $292,804.

Architectural finishes are also slated for Lake Travis Elementary and Lake Pointe Elementary. A contract with Haddon-Cowan Architects is being considered for $3.084 million.

All funds were previously approved by local voters through the district’s $253 million 2018 bond program.
