The HISD Board of Trustees voted to award three new projects from its $1.9 billion 2012 bond program to S&P as a Construction Manager at Risk. S&P will be responsible for providing pre-construction services as well as managing the construction activities for the facilities. The combined value of the three projects is approximately $120 million, and includes:
- Sam Houston High School – a $70 million complete replacement of the existing high school on Houston’s north side. The A/E team will be led by Stantec.
- Westbury High School – a $30 million partial replacement and general renovation of the southwes tHouston campus. The A/E team will be led by Joiner Partnership.
- Young Women’s College Preparatory Academy – a $20 million partial replacement with general renovations to the existing all-girls college preparatory campus. The A/E team will be led by NatexArchitects.
Construction is expected to begin in the first or second quarter of 2016. The Young Women’s Academy should be complete in 2017, while Sam Houston and Westbury will finish in 2018.
