Lamar Consolidated Independent School District

Program overview

Vanir, in a joint venture with Rice & Gardner Consultants, is serving as the program manager for the 2014 Bond Program for Lamar Consolidated Independent School District (CISD). Our team is managing all aspects of the planning, design, procurement, construction, and close-out for all projects, and reports directly to the superintendent and Board of Directors. The scope of work includes:

  • Five new elementary schools, one new middle school
  • Three indoor natatoriums; high school baseball complex improvements; additions to two high school band facilities.
  • New support services facility for maintenance and operations; renovated/expanded facility for purchasing and warehouse; foodservice; and graphics arts.
  • Water plant upgrades at one high school; replacement of chillers at six schools.
  • HVAC web-based controls at 28 facilities.
  • Driveway/parking upgrades at elementary schools.

Latest in technology for program delivery

Our initial task was to find the best real-time reporting system for Lamar CISD’s programs, that would serve both the District and our team’s needs. We led the procurement, implementation, and training for eBuilder, an advanced program management software that provides document controls, cost analysis, workflow processes, and easy access for District stakeholders for all project information.
