AISD Bond Construction Projects

List Sorted by Name of School/Project

Projects completed early in the bond program ran close to or under budget, but cost projections for schools now in construction or design phases are more problematic. The worst budget hassles are on campuses being remodeled or expanded. BLGY/Sverdrup says escalating costs are due to market pressure and protracted negotiations with campus task forces. Contractors say prices are up to offset the costs of doing business with Sverdrup. Some budget overruns could no doubt be worse; many projects have been scaled back considerably through value engineering. Schools in design phase highlighted below (*) have recently received bids as high as 60% over budget.

Status key:
F = Finished
C = Construction Phase
D = Design Phase
(blank) = Not yet begun

Grades key:
BLGY/Sverdrup assigned grades from A - D to each of the ongoing projects in the following categories: budget, schedule, and issues.

A grade B indicates slight problems which are being resolved. Grade C means the prognosis for resolving cost overruns, getting projects back on schedule, and satisfying campus committees is not good.

See maps for specific school sites.
