Dallas Independent School District 2015 Bond Program

Project overview

Vanir, as part of a joint venture (JV) with Dikita, is providing program management services for Dallas Independent School District’s 2015 Bond Program. The $1.6 billion districtwide program is addressing renovations, additions and new facility needs for educational, administrative and athletic facilities. Our scope of work at each school includes the pre-design, design, procurement, construction, closeout and warranty phases.

Projects managed by the JV team include:

  • The addition and rebuild of a PK-12 campus, which replaced Walnut Hill Elementary and Cary Middle Schools, and renovation of the existing Thomas Jefferson High School, which were all damaged/destroyed by an EF-3 tornado
  • A replacement dual language PK-8 school
  • International Code Council compliant storm shelters at 10 separate campuses
  • Renovations/additions to over 20 elementary and middle schools
  • Renovations to more than six high schools, including the nearly 70-year-old South Oak Cliff, as well as David W. Carter, H. Grady Spruce and W.W. Samuell
