Sundt and joint venture partner Guido Construction have made significant progress on the team’s $65 million, Construction Manager at Risk project to update and expand three high schools in San Antonio, Texas. Most of the work at Brackenridge, Burbank and Lanier High Schools has been performed while the schools were open and classes were in session.
Steel erection is underway on the new CATE (Career and Technology Education) building at Brackenridge High School and crews have also begun work on the new chiller plant, which consists of two new chillers, associated pumps and a new boiler. The steel erection and chiller plant operations are scheduled to complete in early January, with the entire project at Brackenridge complete next August – in time for the start of the fall 2014 semester.
Phase one improvements at Burbank and Lanier are already complete, with Phase Two scheduled to begin in January. The scope of work at Burbank will consist of construction of a new gymnasium, agricultural barns, ROTC facility, softball field and renovation of an existing gym. At Lanier, Guido/Sundt will construct a new field house, gym and CATE building.
The K-12 construction project is Sundt’s first for the San Antonio Independent School District.
