Howard College trustees will get an update on the building project on the college's San Angelo campus â€” including a recommendation for construction manager at risk â€” when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building's Tumbleweed Room.
According to College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks, the project â€” estimated at $12 million, with a final figure not yet established â€” will allow for construction of two new buildings on Howard's San Angelo campus.
â€śWe expect to make the recommendation for construction manager at risk for the project,â€ť Sparks said. â€śThe construction will be funded through revenue bonds, which come from the tuition and fees generated by the San Angelo campus alone.â€ť
Sparks said the buildings â€” one will provide classroom space, while the second will be designated for student services â€” represent a step forward for the junior college's San Angelo campus.
â€śWe've had a presence in San Angelo for some time now,â€ť Sparks said. â€śThis project will simply create a place for us. We're very excited about this project and what it will do for student services.â€ť
