Texas School for the Deaf plans $42.5 million project

September 22, 2023

The Texas School for the Deaf is expanding its facilities on South Congress Avenue in Austin to better accommodate transitional college-age students.  

The project includes constructing a 36,000-square-foot, two-story housing building with on-site parking. Plans also call for a 4,000-square-foot addition to an existing classroom building, renovation of a 6,000-square-foot classroom building and improvements to a vehicle entrance.  

The cost estimate is $42.5 million and will use a construction manager at risk (CMR) delivery method. The school recently completed a request for qualifications (RFQ) for architectural and engineering services. That contract is expected to be awarded in February of 2024. The project will require a good-faith effort to use historically underutilized businesses (HUBs), whenever possible.  

The Texas School for the Deaf is a public school for infants, children and young adults with hearing loss and sometimes other disabilities. This work is part of Phase Two of the school’s 2017 master plan designed to improve functionality and capacity due to an expected increase in students and their needs.
