"He would research the requirements, estimate the costs and guide me through the process of what I could and could not have."
Principal, Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders
When Pflugerville ISD put out their RFQ for their 2018 bond work, they had a few big projects among a lot of renovation and improvement projects that would need the full attention of experienced Architects and project managers. As these were district wide projects over many campuses, it added a level of complexity due to their messy nature.
Districtwide the playgrounds were antiquated and in need of replacement. In our design we looked at providing more inclusive equipment and promoting group play. The swings not only added ADA accessibility but were also fitted to be more inclusive of different age groups. The district did not have musically inclined play which was a new feature of the playgrounds. As part of our planning and pricing exercise, artificial turf was installed as a play surface in lieu of the mulch at a few schools. The district has a real cost on a design they like for future bond planning. Playground replacement and improvements were across 9 elementary campuses: Brookhollow ES, Copperfield ES, Dearing ES, Dessau ES, Murchison ES, Northwest ES, Parmer Lane ES, Pflugerville ES and Rowe Lane ES.
After our work on these initial projects, they continued to send more and more projects in our direction since, thanks to their satisfaction with our work.
