Bond, Construction Updates
A fence has gone up along Wildcat Drive, while behind it the walls are coming down at the G-P Intermediate campus to make way for a new Middle School.
Weaver & Jacobs Constructors from Cuero, Texas, were awarded the bid to demolish Intermediate, and also received the contract to build the new G-P Middle School after their successful completion of a recent local project: The new W.C. Andrews Elementary School.
Rawley McCoy & Associates developed the architectural plans, and on April 15, 2019, Trustees awarded a contract to Clearly Zimmerman Engineers for the commissioning of building systems at the new campus.
Beginning this week, community members are invited to stop by and pick up a brick from G-P Intermediate if desired (being stacked along the outside of the blue fence line for the public as demo continues). G-PISD will hold a Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Middle School, and more information will be released as timelines are finalized (with consideration for potential rain delays).
Interested in keeping a piece of G-P history? A pile of commemorative bricks is being laid outside the fence line at the site of the former G-P Intermediate campus, ready for the public. More will be added as demo continues. (Note: Bricks are being placed outside the construction zone. Please do not attempt to enter the gate/campus area. Thank you!)
