Editor's note: This story has been updated to reflect that the project includes an enclosed corridor.

The Round Rock ISD board of trustees Oct. 20 voted to set the maximum price the district will pay for an expansion of Brushy Creek Elementary School, a project funded by the 2018 bond.

Trustees approved a guaranteed maximum price for the project of $13.74 million in a 6-0 vote absent Place 2 Trustee Mary Bone. The amount will allow for an enclosed corridor to connect the new addition and existing structures. It will also require a fire lane extension to accommodate the change in corridor selection, according to district documents.

By approving a maximum guaranteed price contract, the district is able to lock in a cap on the project costs for the expansion.

Project plans for the elementary school's expansion include 16 new classrooms, the expansion of the existing cafeteria and gym, the installation of single-point light controls, improvements to existing ceilings and an interior refresh. The board previously selected Lee Lewis Construction for construction manager at risk to oversee the project during a February meeting.
