HISD holds networking event for architecture and engineering community

November 9, 2012 @ 11:42 am

The Houston Independent School District is hosting a networking event on Nov. 28, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m,. at Carnegie Vanguard High School for local and M/WBE professional service providers to network with architecture and engineering companies.

The gathering will give professional service providers the opportunity to discuss their qualifications should they seek to do business with the district as part of its 2012 bond program.

More than 50 major firms are being invited to the event, where they will be available to meet other professional service providers interested in partnering on the A&E portion of the $1.89 billion bond program, which will fund the replacement or repair of 38 schools, including 28 high schools.

In addition, representatives from HISD will be on hand to answer questions about the bond, the RFQ process and opportunities for minority- and woman-owned business enterprises.

The district will also be seeking Request for Qualifications from firms interested in performing the architectural design and engineering work on the schools in the near future. Construction is expected to begin on some projects in 2014.

The networking event will be held in the high school’s Cafetorium, and is being sponsored by the district’s Business Assistance and Construction Services Divisions.

Carnegie Vanguard High School, at 1501 Taft, opened this year after being rebuilt under the district’s 2007 bond program. The school was designed by Houston-based RdlR Achitects.
