District Selects Contractor for LHS Phase Two Construction
June 30, 2020
The Lindbergh Schools Board of Education voted 6-0 on June 30 to move forward with the second phase of the Lindbergh High School construction project, which includes construction of new state-of-the art, flexible learning space that will connect existing facilities, in addition to extensive renovations and abatement across the campus. (Director Dr. Cathy Carlock Lorenz was not in attendance.)
Four prequalified general contractors responded, and BSI Constructors Inc. was the lowest responsible bidder that submitted a bid in accordance with the specifications furnished by the district, in the amount of $65,747,000.
LHS construction is taking place in three phases. Phase two will include construction of a new three-story structure that will connect existing buildings on the high school campus, in addition to renovation and remodeling work in existing buildings. Phase 2 work is scheduled for completion in January 2023.
Phase one began in summer 2020 and includes construction of a central utility building, demolition of the math building and high school main office, installation of utilities, additional exterior site improvements, and asbestos abatement. Phase three is scheduled to begin in January 2023 and will include demolition of the current auditorium and 300s/400s building, and resurfacing and reconfiguration of on-campus parking areas.
Lindbergh voters overwhelmingly approved Prop R, a $105 million no-tax-rate-increase bond issue to revitalize the Lindbergh High School campus and create districtwide safety equity, in April 2019. More than 77 percent of voters cast ballots in favor of Prop R, which required 57.15 percent for approval.
