Lubbock firm hired to manage BSISD construction projects

November 12, 2010

Big Spring Independent School District will hire a Lubbock firm to oversee several school construction projects over the course of the next couple of years.

Lee Lewis Construction of Lubbock was awarded the “construction manager at risk” contract over six other submissions by BSISD trustees during their Thursday night meeting.

The firm will supervise more than $60 million in construction projects at BSISD the next two years, including construction of three new elementary buildings and extensive renovations at two other campuses.

The awarding of the construction manager contract allowed the district to take a large step toward the start of actual construction, which is scheduled to begin in April or May.

An evaluation committee comprised of three trustees, three administrators and project architects evaluated seven bids for the job, including proposals from firms in Amarillo, Dallas-Fort Worth, Temple and the immediate West Texas area.

Jay Edwards, an architect with Parkhill, Smith & Cooper who is helping design the BSISD projects, said Lewis Construction's proposal best fit local needs.

“We felt like (Lewis Construction's) detailed construction schedule was well thought out,” Edwards said. “And they've worked on a very similar … elementary school project in Lubbock a couple of years ago. So their experience was very applicable to what they'll be doing here.”
