Argyle School District Referendum Project
A facility committee, made up of community members, board members, staff, and administration was formed to study the building needs at Argyle School District, a District all under one roof. A comprehensive review of the District identified a list of the most pressing infrastructure needs.
On April 5, 2016 voters approved a $6.5 million dollar referendum for a new tech ed addition, maintenance garage, roof replacement and renovations to the existing facility including, corridor floor replacement, science room remodel, elementary gym remodel, HVAC system upgrade and locker room remodel. Voters also approved a $2.6 million referendum to pay for an auxiliary gym addition.
During the construction of this project, our crews got the tech ed students involved as a learning opportunity. Students were provided with hands-on experience in using masonry tools and materials. We prefabricated the masonry bond beam lintels in their shop to show them how to build them and what they would be used for on the addition to their schools. Involving students in the project is a great way to give them a real-life example of what it is like to work in the trades, and gives them the opportunity to stamp their legacy on their own school!
