Mustang Middle School

Educational

Mustang, Oklahoma

Brief Summary

The passing of a school bond project enabled Mustang Middle School to renovate their building, including administration, media, school classrooms, fine arts, the gym, locker rooms, and dining room. A running track, football field, competition softball fields, and tennis courts were also added. For Crossland, this project required three different types of construction under one roof.  

Crossland attended every design meeting with the district from start to finish, allowing our teams to add value up front and weigh in on types of materials and budget impact. Since the bond budget would be pre-determined by voters, our input early on established a spending range per square foot. That dollar amount then went into the bond resolution that was put to vote with the community.  

One-third of the construction included two stories of conventional structural steel that houses the administration, media, and school classrooms. The next third is the precast safe room that houses the fine arts area of the school. The final third included a pre-engineered metal building that houses the gym, locker rooms, and dining room. In addition to the building, external features included a running track, football field, competition softball fields, and tennis courts.

The site for this project was located adjacent to a federally protected pond. A historic 90 days of rain occurred during the timeframe of our project and virtually washed out our job site with each rain event. This meant a significant amount of time was spent de-watering the site, running pumps and hoses, and working in mud.  

In addition, two subcontractors filed bankruptcy and another changed ownership. To ensure progress would continue, we self-performed the work that was transferred from the subcontractors and restructured the plan. Despite these challenges, teachers were able to move into their classrooms ahead of schedule and the project came in under budget.

A running track, football field, competition softball fields, and tennis courts were also added. Crossland attended every design meeting with the district, allowing our teams to weigh in on types of materials and budget impact and establish a spending range per square foot for the district to include in the bond resolution that was put to vote with the community. 

This project required three different types of construction in order to renovate the various areas of the school across a wide variety of uses, including conventional structural steel, precast, and a pre-engineered metal building. Challenges included persistent job site wash out due to 90 days of rain, and subcontractor bankruptcy. However, our teams pushed forward to ensure progress would continue. Despite these challenges, teachers were able to move into their classrooms ahead of schedule and the project came in under budget.
