    • Requires Design: Yes
    • Delivery Method: CMAR

  • Project Update - May 2023

    The 2022 Bond included funding for a Fine Arts expansion at Lake Belton Middle School, which will include a new band hall as well as storage and practice areas. The project also includes additional athletic locker room space, a training room addition and a new main gym entry foyer with restrooms and a concessions area. 


    Following the passage of the 2022 Bond, the district collaborated with stakeholders to identify program requirements, and the project is in the final stages of the design process.


    Design team work continues at a fast pace.  The project is being fast-tracked, meaning the design documents are being published in phases for use by the construction manager in bidding specific scopes of work as soon as designs are completed.  This allows the construction team to order long-lead materials and begin initial demolition and site work before the full design documents are published. The first “Guaranteed Maximum Price” (GMP#1) will be presented to the Board for approval at the regularly scheduled meeting on April 17, 2023.  GMP#1 includes materials and equipment with long-lead times such as electrical and mechanical equipment, roofing materials, as well as structural elements such as concrete and steel needed for the building structures.  GMP#1 also includes work associated with demolition, earthwork, and site utilities.  Initial construction activity at the school is currently scheduled to start at the end of May 2023, immediately following the end of the current school year.
