Dallas-based Cadence McShane Construction Co. was recently awarded a contract for the 75,715-sq-ft addition and renovation assignment at Vines High School in the Plano Independent School District.

The school is on a 17-acre site located at 15th Street and Highedge Drive in Plano. The project will encompass 50,000 sq ft of high-tech updates to the school, including the renovation of the existing administrative and counselor offices, as well as improvements to the music and band areas.

The assignment also includes a 25,715-sq-ft, two-story addition, featuring elevator service, for the school’s new science wing. Construction began in late July with completion slated for November 2010.

The project is part of the Plano ISD’s 2008 Bond Program, which voters passed in last year. It provides $490 million for construction, renovation and technology initiatives.

Dallas-based Corgan Associates Inc. will provide architectural services for this project.
