Balfour Beatty US has been selected to serve as construction manager for Cleburne Independent School District’s (CISD) $100 million, 500,000-square-foot update and expansion of Cleburne High School (CHS). The 2016 voter-approved school bond calls for the update and expansion of the 41-year-old existing high school to provide students and faculty a secure, state-of-the-art learning environment. The city itself is rich in architecture, and the newly renovated high school will mirror the design of the Guinn Justice Center, which served as the community’s high school in the early 1900s.

The transformation of CHS into a future-ready school for 21st century learners will include a new and expanded Career Technology Education facility, advanced science wing, a two-story classroom wing for core classes, a library, and the relocation of the TEAM alternative school to the campus. The performing arts center, fine arts instructional areas and all athletic facilities will also undergo renovations and additions. Balfour Beatty’s scope includes selective demolition, site preparation, new utilities, audiovisual equipment, hardscape and landscape elements, as well as the addition of 1,000 new parking spaces.
