January 2, 2018 – Avery Elementary

The Bellevue School Board has approved the process of going out to bid for planned work at Avery Elementary to complete life safety, building security and HVAC upgrades in the building. Life safety and security considerations that will be taken care of include the installation of a fire sprinkler system throughout the building, inclusion of a new security entrance vestibule, and construction of new stairwell enclosures to comply with current fire codes. HVAC upgrades will include the replacement of the existing chiller/condensing units and replacement of the individual unit VAV boxes that serve the individual classrooms. Pricing will also be received on replacement of existing boilers and main air handler unit to determine if these items will be included (budget dependent) since these items will also be nearing the end of their window of useful use expectancy. Work identified within the scope of the bond work also includes the repair/replacement of some existing railroad tie walls located at a couple of areas on the site. It is anticipated that work on the project will begin in mid-May and should be substantially complete in time for the start of school in August 2018.
