WICHITA FALLS, Texas (April 28, 2016) –Sundt Construction, Inc. (www.sundt.com) and a joint venture partner have started construction on a Career and Technical Education Center for the Wichita Falls Independent School District (WFISD).
The Trinity Hughes|Sundt Joint Venture was given the go-ahead to begin work by the school district during a board of trustees meeting last month. The board approved a guaranteed maximum price of $30,282,449 for the bond-funded center.

The project is scheduled for completion next summer.
