Seguin ISD - Bond Program Management

As part of the 2013 Bond Construction Program, SISD selected Broaddus & Associates as Program Manager for a new $83.3M Seguin High School (SHS). Local voters approved the construction to be built on its existing campus that opened in 1953 and expanded incrementally over the decades. All but about 20% of the old high school was demolished to make room for 345,804 new SF and the renovation of 97,195 SF of existing facilities.

The new SHS also included a new 880-seat Performing Arts Center (PAC). It includes a black box theater for practice, dressing rooms, storage, a catwalk connecting the box and PAC, as well as classroom space. A hallway also connects the PAC with the band hall, mariachi room, and choir room, allowing their own practice space.

The project also included new gymnasiums, indoor/outdoor athletic facilities, cafeteria, science labs, academic classrooms, and a state-of-the-art library called the Learning Innovation Space. The former Freshman Center was renovated to house the Career and Technological Education classrooms. The Matador House includes classroom space for team meetings and the Flexible School Day Program, as well as the dance/cheer gym, wellness center/physical education gym, weight room, locker rooms and Student Activity Center (SAC). The SAC can hold up to 1,400 people, while the Wellness Center can fit about 700.

As Program Manager, Broaddus & Associates worked alongside the client, contractor, and design team to ensure SISD’s interests were protected. We provided oversight of preconstruction services, estimating, master program scheduling, design & constructability reviews, and full project management services from onset to closeout. Our team provided the project with strong scheduling resources, which was vital since the high school was built in phases over 3 years, so instruction could continue throughout the work. Our team also implemented several important value engineering practices when construction costs for the new campus were exceeding the budget. Ultimately, the project was delivered within budget and in time for the 2017 fall semester.
