Moving forward on major Bond 2018 projects, the Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved architects to develop master plans and designs for the rebuild of C.D. Fulkes Middle School and the Aquatic Practice Facility during their Regular Meeting in February.

Stantec Architecture, Inc. was approved as the architect for the C.D. Fulkes project. Their past projects include Olathe West High School in Kansas and the Science Technology Engineering and Math focused Academies of Loudoun in Virginia.

The approved architect for the Aquatic Practice Facility project is Kirksey Architects. Projects they’ve previously worked on include the Fort Bend ISD Aquatic Practice Facility and Milby High School in Houston.

For school districts in Texas, the process of selecting architects and engineers for projects must be in accordance with the Professional Services Procurement Act (PSPA) rather than on the basis of competitive bidding or another method of competitive procurement. Potential architectural or engineering candidates go through a rigorous evaluation process which takes into consideration the scope of the project and the candidates qualifications.

Both the C.D Fulkes and Aquatic Practice Center projects were included in the voter-approved 2018 Bond. More information on 2018 Bond projects can be found on Round Rock ISD’s Bond Website.
