Real Deals: Speed Fab-Crete, other Fort Worth firms tackle Keene school project

The Fort Worth Business Press obtains some of its Real Deals content through a partnership with Xceligent Inc., a commercial real estate research firm.

 

Speed Fab-Crete of Fort Worth and its design partner Callahan & Freeman Architects have been chosen to provide design and construction services for an addition to Wanda R. Smith High School in Keene.
The $2.9 million project will add a 16,167-square-foot addition to the school at 404 Charger Drive. Plans call for eight classrooms, including general classrooms, a science lab, computer lab, a “green room” for television-film production classes and a library.
The Keene Independent School District already owns the land.
Using a design-build construction strategy in which both aspects occur simultaneously, the project is expected to be completed in July.
The Keene school board chose Speed Fab-Crete and Callahan & Freeman after soliciting bids by May 17, 2013. The firms were chosen on Oct. 31.
The project team also includes Callahan Structural Engineers of Fort Worth, Fratto Engineering Inc. of Arlington, and Ideal Architectural Design and Childress Engineers, both of Cleburne.
