The project, which includes a new Aransas County courthouse and Rockport city hall, received commissioners’ approval to rebid the RFQ and allow for a construction manager agent. It would also eliminate the appearance of any possible conflicts of interest.

According to RFQ documents, the Anchor Project is the first major step of recovery in the reconstruction of government facilities lost in Hurricane Harvey. Initial estimates for the courthouse project called for about 55,000 square feet with a budget $18 million to $19.3 million. The City Hall project was initially estimated at 28,000 square feet at a cost of $9 million to $10 million.
