The board of trustees approved the building contracts at a Feb. 6 meeting. They come from the district’s $350 million bond package, which was approved by voters in November 2018.
The two largest projects—one worth $33.4 million at DeWitt Perry Middle School and another worth $25.4 million at Newman Smith High School—will be completed by VLK Architects and LPA, Inc., respectively.
The Perry Middle School project will include renovations of the classroom areas, roofs, mechanical equipment and building finishes, according to CFBISD documents. The Smith High School project will include renovations on career- and technical-based classrooms, roofs, mechanical equipment and building finishes.
The district expects to start the construction projects in May 2021 and to have them completed by August 2022, according to district staff.
The approved bond funds will also support work on nine other CFBISD facilities.
