The Liberty Independent School District selected Webber Commercial Construction, LLC, part of the Webber group of companies, to manage $9.5 million of construction work that will begin in May 2018 and include multiple projects across the district.
During the next 14 months, Webber Commercial will construct a new transportation center, STEM learning center and conduct multiple school renovations. The new transportation center will consist of a new bus maintenance building with office space and parts storage. The transportation center site will provide the district with additional bus parking, fueling station and bus wash. The new STEM learning center at Liberty Elementary School will add 10,000 square feet of additional learning space in order to allow students to work specifically on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math at a young age with more hands-on applications.
In addition, an estimated $1.5 million will be used for multiple renovations across three schools, including San Jacinto Elementary School, Liberty Elementary School and Liberty High School. These improvements include updates to existing facilities, such as roofing, walkway cover, tennis court surface and parking light pole replacement.
“With the Liberty ISD bond, the district will bring new services to students and teachers while improving existing educational facilities”
“Our relationship with Liberty ISD and Stantec Architects has allowed us to help the district maximize their budget throughout the planning and design process”
Substantial completion of the projects is expected by June 2019.
