Sheldon ISD Board of Trustees authorized the use of CMAR during the September 4, 2016 board meeting. The Board chose this method of construction procurement after hearing about the various methods allowed under Texas law. The CMAR method allows the District to make use of the services of the contractor during design so that costs, quality and schedule are better managed for this important project. In November, the Board expects to receive a recommendation and begin contracting with a CMAR for the new high school project. No construction will occur immediately and the CMAR will still have to prepare a competitive quote using multiple bids from trade subcontractors.
