Houston ISD to hold networking event for subcontractors
The Houston Independent School District will host a networking event for subcontractors from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, at Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston.
According to a district press release, the session is for subcontractors interested in providing services to architecture and engineering companies and doing business with the district in the 2012 bond program.
Participants will be able to discuss their qualifications in front of district personnel as well as 50 prime contractors who will have tables set up at the event. The networking session is targeted for subcontractors interested in being involved in the $1.89 billion project for replacement or repair of 38 schools, including 28 high schools.
HISD representatives will be available to answer questions about the bond, the request for qualification process and opportunities for minority- and woman-owned businesses. Construction is expected to begin on some projects in 2014.
"HISD recognizes that finding the most qualified architectural and engineering firms is the first step to modernizing and transforming our schools with a quality construction program," said Leo Bobadilla, district COO, in the press release. "We hope this event will answer questions about the process and give companies the opportunity to network and partner."
The networking session is sponsored by the district's business assistance and construction services division and will be held in the school's cafetorium.
Carnegie Vanguard High School is at 1501 Taft St., Houston. RSVPs are requested.
The Houston Independent School District is located at 4400 W. 18th St., Houston.
