Projects from Carroll ISD’s 2017 bond program to move ahead in coming months


Carroll ISD families can expect to see progress with several 2017 bond projects.

The CISD board of trustees agreed to a guaranteed maximum price of nearly $3.66 million to pay Reeder General Contractors Inc. for work on the Carroll Senior High School Aquatics Center and other school facilities at its June 3 meeting.

“We’re kind of at the 50% mark on our bond issue, at this point,” Bond Program Manager John Haugen said.

Work crews have completed Phase 1 of the CSHS Aquatics Center project, which included renovations for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, Haugen said.

Much of the remaining upgrades on the pool and other facilities will take place in 2019, according to CISD’s bond program website.

Following the current schedule, the aquatics center will shut down from July 27-Oct. 1, Haugen said.

Reeder will also be doing renovations at Johnson Elementary School, Walnut Grove Elementary School, Durham Intermediate School, Dawson Middle School, the transportation center and the administration building, according to meeting documents. Project scopes include building and system improvements, according to the CISD’s bond program website.

Work at the transportation center will wrap up in the next couple of months, Haugen said.

The school district will also move forward with plans to replace deteriorating rooftop units at Carroll High School with more efficient units. Project costs will not exceed $851,826.

School board members also signed off on a $27.1 million contract with construction company Muckleroy & Falls to build the new CSHS music center.

The music center will feature a state-of-the-art auditorium capable of seating 700 people, upgrades to the existing auditorium, a new black box theater and a new media lab.

Muckleroy & Falls’ proposal included work to improve safety and security that was not in the original project scope. Because of this additional work, the project would cost more than the initial allocation of $24 million, according to meeting documents.
