New construction status website provides bond updates

Wondering what has taken place since voters approved Garland ISD’s $455.5 million bond election last November? The district hired a company named Jacobs to oversee its program, and they created a construction status website to provide updates, a comprehensive schedule and more.

The newly launched will not only keep the public up-to-date, but also solicit partnerships with the local business community through project bids. Organized in five phases, GISD’s Bond 2014 program will begin with the addition of lights and restrooms at high school softball and baseball fields.

View Jacobs’ schedule to see design, contracting and construction timelines for each phase, as well as corresponding facilities. Cost estimates can be found on phase maps, which group projects by similar scopes and timelines. Project updates detailing the progress at each facility will be added as work gets underway.
