Aldine ISD – Bond Program Construction Management

Houston Texas

As a part of Aldine ISD’s $785 million 2015 bond program, LAN served as Program Manager for repair projects across the District. LAN’s work affected 54 of the district’s educational facilities and provided repairs ranging from simple spot repairs to comprehensive MEP and interior upgrades.

LAN worked with Aldine ISD to develop logical work packages to ensure participation by many design firms and the ability to be aggressive with the project schedules. LAN assisted the district with an architectural selection process that fielded ten architecture firms and assisted with the selection of five engineering firms to provide MEP design services. Additionally, LAN worked with pre-approved district suppliers and vendors to perform small scope of work assignments.

Altogether, LAN managed fifteen prime consultants. To initiate the program, LAN scrutinized the Facility Condition Assessment furnished by another Program Manager to determine a scope of work that reflected the District’s priorities and spending thresholds. In concert with the District, LAN defined standards of acceptability and contracted with the selected consultants to validate the findings of the assessment and prepare scope of work summaries and budgets. Six months after the completion of project prioritization and grouping, more than $80 million across fifty-four schools and twenty-eight companies was either designed or in construction. LAN was responsible for reviewing the work produced by the consultants, contract cost management, schedule coordination, and construction administration activities.

LAN worked with the District staff to manage the bidding, contracting and payment processes within the guidelines established by the District. Our aggressive approach to the projects allowed the team to complete the work on time and under budget.
