Stafford ISD called upon Jamail & Smith Construction to convert an existing middle school into a facility that would meet the needs of their newest school: STEM Magnet Academy.
The drawings and specifications had been developed but the project was over budget. In order to keep the designed improvements and the project under budget, our team worked directly with the owner and architect to better understand the needs of the client and develop a cost savings project scope. Once this cost savings scope had been reviewed and agreed upon, our team got to work. The owner was able to keep the intent of the drawings intact even with the modified work scope, plus there was a considerable amount of cost-savings.
With the help of our team, existing classrooms were upgraded, and specialty rooms like a medical-lab, robotics lab, and a coding lab were added. Take a look at the final result! We were able to provide a colorful, modern and usable space for the students of STEM Magnet Academy before their grand opening this Fall.
In challenging moments of the project, our team provided recommendations and presented solutions to the project team. The solutions enabled us to move forward with the project and transform a space that the students at STEM Magnet Academy will love.
But our work didn’t stop there. We also took on the interior renovation at Stafford ISD High School. Next week, we will dive into that side of the project.
The American School & University Magazine highlighted the project, showcasing all the students of the STEM Magnet Academy will be able to enjoy when they open this Fall. Read their article here.
