Project Status

UPDATE:

Construction on the addition is ongoing. The addition is now dried in, and the roof-top HVAC units are being started. The exterior glass, metal wall panels and brick are in progress. Inside, the drywall is going up.

For the existing building, some roof replacement is done, boilers have been replaced and a new switchgear has been installed. Renovations are just starting in Gym C and the old orchestra room. The books in the library have been packed up and moved to storage until the new library is ready.

New flooring was installed in Halls A and B over the winter break, and Hall C will be done this summer. The new flooring will match what will go in the addition.

The football field and track have been replaced, and the tennis courts were resurfaced. Work on the new competition softball field is almost finished and is open for practice. 

The whole project at Arlington High School includes an addition with new classrooms, a new library, a new band hall and more, and it will help provide the space needed for the future fine arts/dual language high school academy. The project also includes renovations for the entire building’s mechanical, engineering and plumbing systems. The project is expected to finish up in November.

See the schematic design presentation given by VLK Architects to the Arlington ISD Board of Trustees on March 10, 2022.
