BISD BOND PROJECT UPDATES:
BJHS DESIGN TEAM MEETINGS
The BJHS Design Team is comprised of 35 individuals representing various departments and programs from the campus and district level and inclusive of studnet and parent representatives.
The Design Team meets every other week. Their work so far has included an initial review of square footage allotments and site layout. Drafting multiple layout options and then working to select and refine the most desired layout for the building.
Next steps include finalizing the placement of the facility on the designated site and refining parking, traffic flow, and outdoor learning spaces.
The team will then transition into specialized teams designing the details for each area including fine arts, athletics, electives with ag and engineering, instructional spaces, special education spaces, administrative and nurse's spaces, detailed design for the media center/library, and kitchen and cafeteria.
Once detailed designs for each space are finalized the team will transition into the process of selecting interior finishes, fixtures, equipment and furniture.
DESIGN TEAM SITE VISITS
Members of the BJHS Design Team including students, staff, and leaders visited three different districts who partnered with our architects for recent construction projects.
The team was able to see design components that we liked and are seeking to incorporate into our building and design components that don't necessarily fit the style and functionality of our vision for our new campus.
