HISD to hold subcontractor outreach session for rebuilding of Harvey-damaged schools

The HISD Business Assistance Supplier Diversity team is holding an outreach session on Friday for minority- and women-owned business enterprises (M/WBE) interested in working as subcontractors on the projects to rebuild four schools damaged by Hurricane Harvey.

Last week, the HISD Board of Education selected Satterfield & Pontikes Construction as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) tasked with overseeing the demolition and construction of the four elementary schools – Kolter, Mitchell, Braeburn, and Scarborough.

The outreach session is specifically targeted toward M/WBE firms interested in working as subcontractors for the CMAR. The event will be held on Feb. 16 at 11:30 a.m. at the Hexar T. Holliday Food Services Support Center, 6801 Bennington St.
