Softball Upgrades at Katy High School (KHS) and Taylor High School (THS)
Estimated Project Timeline
Scope of Work
Katy High School (KHS)
The softball field at KHS was constructed in 1998. No major renovations have been done since then. The softball park at KHS, along with the concession stand, press box, and bleachers, needs to be updated. The original facility was established without the growth of softball or the number of participants being taken into account. The restroom facilities are not big enough for the crowds. Renovations/upgrades to include bleachers to accommodate fans, press box, restrooms, concessions stands, brick dugouts, new irrigation/drainage, refurbish batting cages, storage facility and bull pens.
Taylor High School (THS)
The softball field at THS was constructed in 1997. No major renovations have been done since then. Renovations needed to bring the THS softball complex in line with other district softball complexes and to ensure equity amongst THS baseball and softball programs (Title IX Law) include the following: bleachers to accommodate fans, press box, restrooms, concession stands, brick dugouts, new scoreboard, refurbish batting cages, storage facility, backstop, drainage, and bull pens.
These renovations will bring the THS softball complex up to the standards of other facilities in the district.
Furthermore, our softball complex and tennis complex share common restrooms, concessions, coach’s offices, and locker areas. The offices are outdated and the locker rooms are too small to accommodate both tennis and softball. Summer recreation programs use these facilities all summer and we need separate locker rooms to house both softball girls and tennis girls along with tennis boys. Offices with phone and internet capabilities need to be included.
Special schedule considerations are as follows
The District has a critical need for occupancy by August 2016
The schedule is preliminary and will be finalized during the design phase of the project.
The project may be designed and built on a phased construction schedule to meet Owner needs
