Bond 2010 construction project at Jefferson earns statewide recognition

Bond 2010 construction project at Jefferson earns statewide recognition

A Jefferson High School construction project has earned statewide recognition for its outstanding workmanship.

The project, which was part of Bond 2010, received the Associated General Contractors (AGC) Statewide Outstanding Construction Award for projects in the range of $10 million to $30 million. The award was presented by the local AGC chapter at its luncheon June 12.

Projects are judged in four areas:

  • Difficulty in construction resulting from design, location and materials
  • Unusual construction techniques involved
  • Final appearance and quality of the finished product
  • Timeliness of completion

“The project involved preservation of historic structures, foundation and structure repairs,” said Kamal ElHabr, SAISD Associate Superintendent of Facilities. “Also, in partnership with the City and County, we addressed drainage and flooding issues; and, with ongoing community and City input, we acquired and developed an adjacent church property. All of this construction was accomplished safely and efficiently while the school was occupied by students and staff.”

The project also will be honored during the 2017 AGC-Texas Building Branch Convention in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho June 18-21.
