Lake Belton Middle School Fine Arts Expansion
- Architect: O’Connell Robertson
- Requires Design: Yes
- Delivery Method: CMAR
Project Update - August 2023
The 2022 Bond included funding for a Band Hall addition, repurposing the existing band hall to serve the Orchestra Program, as well as new restrooms, concessions, locker rooms for pre-athletics, and a training room for campus athletics, reducing the district’s dependence on long-term portable buildings to accommodate existing programs and new students.
Following passage of the 2022 Bond, the district collaborated with stakeholders to identify program requirements. Design documents were completed by O’Connell Robertson Architects in the Spring of 2023. The project is currently in the early stages of construction under the direction of the district’s construction manager, Core Construction.
August 2023 Update: The building permit was issued by the City of Temple on May 24, 2023. Construction crews continue efforts to relocate existing utilities. Once utility relocations are complete, the construction team will immediately begin installation of building pads for the band hall addition and athletics addition. As summer comes to a close and the new school year approaches, the construction team will begin installation of concrete foundations and preparing the structural concrete tiltwall panels.
