Building New Schools

The Department of Construction oversees and coordinates the multitude of construction projects throughout the school district.  Projects such as new schools, libraries, expanded kitchens and new classroom wings are designed by architectural firms selected through a Request For Proposal process.  Some of the LCPS school additions, expansion or remodeling projects also are designed by the Director of Construction Gloria J. Martinez.

Architects, contractors and other firms interested in submitting bids for the various school construction projects can contact Purchasing Director Will Manning for deadlines and specifications at (575) 527-5846.

It is the intent of the Las Cruces Public Schools to build new facilities, and to retrofit older buildings, in support of the educational process. Functional school buildings are a product of an educational planning process that leads to a design that organizes all activity and space around students and teachers and the work they do. LCPS uses a collaborative process, involving parents, students, staff and community, in the design of new or remodeled facilities.

To ensure that designs support the district’s vision and mission, LCPS follows regulations specified within the New Mexico Administrative Code.
