Friendswood ISD has taken another step forward on its bond-funded renovations to Windsong Intermediate School.

The district’s board of trustees voted unanimously Oct. 10 to award a contract for the renovations to Nash Industries Inc. The contract amounts to $5.28 million, coming in at $1.07 million over the project’s original budget.

Windsong Intermediate will transition to Windsong Elementary, a K-5 campus, in the 2023-24 school year. Renovations to Windsong primarily include a six-classroom addition to the building.

The project timeline is still on track as planned. Construction will begin in late October or November with construction estimated to be completed in July 2023.
