Tomball ISD board approves new contracts for 2017 bond projects

February 13, 2019

Tomball ISD trustees have approved the costs of projects from the $275 million bond approved by voters in 2017 that include a new agriculture barn, natatorium and other upgrades for six campuses.

The board agreed to pay $48,200 to the inspection firm Winning Way Services to review the plans and additions to Tomball Intermediate School, Tomball High School and Tomball Memorial High School.

“For code review, you understand that’s mechanical, electrical — that is all of the code review,” Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora said during the workshop meeting on Monday.

According to the 2017 bond outline, Tomball Intermediate School will have its entrance renovated for about $1.5 million.

Tomball High School will have a new agriculture barn built for $7.1 million. Back in November, the district overcame a hurdle after the Tomball City Council approved the construction of the new barn.

The district will also build a new $15 million natatorium at Tomball Memorial High School.

The board approved a $30,030 contract with Miller Survey Group for the new agriculture barn and a $5,500 contract with engineering and surveying firm Jones|Carter for the natatorium project.

Trustees also voted to approve safety and security upgrades by Custom Access & Integration on the external doors at Creekside Park Junior High for $41,210, Tomball Junior High for $46,610 and Willow Wood Junior High for $83,575.
