The Round Rock ISD board of trustees revealed the renderings for Phase 3 construction that will add two academic wings at Round Rock High School during its Oct. 18 meeting.
Alan Albers, executive director of operation and facilities, said the new design for interior of the high school is meant to replicate what is currently in the library and cafeteria.
“Phase 3 will almost complete the picture of academic wings, with one wing to go,” he said.
Albers said the fourth wing will be a part of Phase 4 construction. Architecture firm PBK is designing Phase 3.
The construction project for Round Rock High School was approved by the board in 2008 with the agreement that the construction be spread out into four phases, he said.
The board decided that a significant portion of the 100 building, as well as the entirety of both the 200 and 500 buildings, will be demolished. The master plan indicates that the space will possibly be used for additional parking, Albers said.
Albers said the project is expected to be completed in summer 2014. On Aug. 8, the board approved spending $25 million to build the new high school and consolidate the alternative high school, which currently operates out of portables at Westwood and Stony Point high schools.
The board approved purchasing 22 acres of land on the north side of Gattis School Road near I-35 and just south of Voight Elementary School earlier this year.
