Heritage ES Rebuild

Rendering of new Heritage Elementary

Status: Completed
Construction Budget: $31,146,873
Scheduled Completion Date: July 2021
Site Work & Existing School Demo Complete: January 2022

Heritage Elementary School was originally built in 1987. This Bond 2019 project calls for the complete replacement of the campus on the existing campus site. Existing space on the property exists to allow for the construction of the new campus without any interruption to the existing building. After completion of the new building, the old campus will be demolished.

The project contractor has mobilitized, installed perimeter fencing around the construction zone areas of the property, set up the project job trailers, located existing utility lines, and has almost completed site grading and will start piles. 

The Board of Trustees approved a GMP amendment to the construction contract with BTC in the amount of $1,196,990 for the fifth-grade addition to the building. Changes in the Vista Ridge Middle School feeder pattern necessitated the need for the additional classroom space.

June 2020 Update

Posted by Keller ISD Bond on 6/17/2020

Despite Keller ISD's COVID-19 closure, progress continues on both the Heritage Elementary and Florence Elementary projects. 

Florence's site plan was formally approved by the Southlake City Council in April and plans for Heritage have been submitted to the City of Fort Worth. In early May, the construction manager received bids for the construction of the two projects, but with the instability of the construction market since March, the manager and VLK Architects are continuing to work to ensure that the projects both remain within budget before accepting a bid. 

Below is a look at the preliminary design of the new Heritage Elementary School:
