The city of Colleyville will spend more money on a gymnasium renovation at the recreation center.

Council approved a change order in the amount not to exceed $100,000 during the Feb. 20 meeting on the property located at 5008 Roberts Road.

Fransen-Pittman General Construction Co., based out of Grapevine, was awarded the contract for the work.

The details

During the Feb. 6 council work session, Assistant City Manager Mark Wood noted the city ran into issue with the stage area—it was a concrete and not wood.

“Busting all the concrete out of there was a pretty big issue, but we worked through it,” Wood said.

Council was presented with a contract to fix the stage and a few other "unforeseen conditions" within the former Colleyville Covenant Church, Wood said.

Colleyville purchased the property in September 2022 for $8.5 million and planned to spend $1.5 million in renovations.

The change order approved was $34,799—with the city having saved around $20,000 on labor thanks to city employees doing some of the work.

  • Additional stage demolition: $21,917
  • Additional electrical for Draper system, a dividing curtain on the basketball courts: $7,479
  • Replace existing fire sprinkler system that were painted over: $2,750
  • Removing iron that conflicts with mechanical piping: $4,985
