Big Spring Independent School District trustees are expected to name a construction manager for upcoming bond projects when they hold their regular monthly meeting at 5:15 p.m. today in the high school board room.
District officials received seven proposals from prospective managers to ramrod more than $50 million in construction projects that are scheduled to begin next spring, Superintendent Steven Saldivar said.
â€śWe received seven proposals from across Texas,â€ť Saldivar said. â€ś(The district's evaluation committee) opened the proposals on the 8th and met twice since that time to consider them. They were very good, very competitive proposals â€¦ This job attracted some very qualified construction managers.â€ť
Bids were received from firms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Amarillo, Lubbock and Temple, as well from the immediate area, Saldivar noted.
Once the board approves a construction manager, that person will meet with administrators and architects to begin finalizing construction plans.
