July 28, 2016—Representatives from Gilbane Building Company and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD joined hundreds of construction workers for a lunch and milestone safety celebration in the future cafeteria of CFISD’s 12th high school, Bridgeland High School, on July 27.
Dr. Mark Henry, CFISD superintendent, commends the construction workers for their dedication to building the multi-campus site in Bridgeland.
The celebration recognized Gilbane’s progress on the high school and elementary school No. 55, both of which will open in August 2017 and be part of a multi-campus site including a future middle school. More than 600 workers have dedicated 500,000 hours to the project and have successfully completed 353 days without an accident.
Dr. Mark Henry, CFISD superintendent of schools, addressed the workers on the construction site on House Hahl Road.

“This is going to be an unbelievable facility for our students to attend,” Dr. Henry said. “The opportunities our students are going to have will be unlimited. Even though brick has just started being installed, you can tell it’s going to be a beautiful facility that’s going to add a lot to the northwest side of the community.”
The 128-acre Bridgeland multi-campus site, designed by IBI Group, Inc., will be located between Mason Road and the Grand Parkway.
CFISD’s 12th high school, designed by IBI Group, Inc., and constructed by Gilbane Building Company, will open in the 2017-2018 school year between Mason Road and the Grand Parkway.
Dr. Henry commended the workers for their dedication on a large-scale project.
CFISD Elementary School No. 55 will be part of a multi-campus site in Bridgeland along with Bridgeland High School and a future middle school.
“To go nearly a year without having an accident on a project of this magnitude is a testament to the contractor and subcontractors and how conscious they are of making sure their colleagues are taken care of,” Dr. Henry said. I commend Gilbane and all the subcontractors for taking safety seriously.”
