History: Just after second semester was underway in 1962, sophomores, juniors and seniors at Bellevue Junior/Senior High School, located at what is now Mission Middle School, prepared to move to a new high school, which was then called Bellevue Senior High School. The three story building housed all students until the second and third phases and the gymnasium were completed with two outdoor courtyards in 1963. A decade later an auditorium and a swimming pool were added. The auditorium is the largest auditorium for the Bellevue/Offutt Community. The indoor swimming pool was Bellevue’s first. Many other major additions and remodeling continued for the next 42 years. In 1977, Bellevue Senior High School was divided to create the present Bellevue East and Bellevue West High Schools.

Project Notes

October 14, 2019 – Bellevue East High School

Bellevue East High School – HVAC Project
The work involving the new $8.3 million HVAC installation at Bellevue East High School being completed by Lueder Construction is nearing its completion stage. The old steam heating/ chiller cooling system has been replaced with a new Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system which should reduce the energy consumption of the building, provide indoor air quality and greater individual room control for temperatures throughout the building. Minor system adjustment and commissioning of the systems will continue through the Fall of 2019. The project involved a very complex construction phasing plan that was planned with the school administration to keep work ongoing through the 2018-2019 school year to help accelerate the completion of the project.

Bellevue East High School Roof Projects
In a previous roof study completed for the Bellevue School District, a significant portion of the existing roof areas at Bellevue East was identified as being in critical need of repair/replacement. A significant amount of the identified roof area was replaced by McCoy Roofing over the past year in conjunction with the concurrent HVAC renovation project.

Another separate roof project is currently being completed over the main gym area of the building by Bradco Roofing Co. The bulk of the roofing system work is completed and final trim work should be completed by the end of October 2019.

Bellevue East Pool Maintenance Project
Work was completed on some miscellaneous maintenance work within the pool area at Bellevue East. The scope of work included refinishing of the pool finishes, installation of new starting blocks, installation of handrails in the seating areas, installation of slip-resistant flooring in the spectator walk areas, and installation of new pool filtration and chemical treatment systems. The new pool filter/treatment systems is anticipated to save money on the amount of chemicals used in the water treatment as well as a significant reduction of the amount of water usage with the new water treatment system due to the reduced amount of water flushing required.

Bellevue East Track/ Baseball Field
Renovations were completed in 2019 for the track at Bellevue East. The existing rubber surfacing at the track was at the end of its life expectancy and is starting to deteriorate. The existing rubber surfacing was removed and replaced with a new black crumb rubber running surface.

New lights were also installed at the football field. These new LED lights improve the lighting aspects on the field and will also reduce the energy used for lighting for the various activities. The lights also come with a 25-year warranty where the lighting manufacturer will take care of any issues that happen during the warranty period which will provide additional savings to the District due to reduced maintenance costs.

The District is also moving forward with the replacement of the existing lights at Roddy Field on the Bellevue East campus. It was determined in an inspection of the existing lights earlier in 2019 that the existing wood poles were rapidly deteriorating and was starting to pose safety concerns. The installation work for the poles will be starting in mid-October 2019 and is anticipated being completed by the end of November 2019.

HVAC Project

Work is continuing at Bellevue East with Lueder Construction and the Ray Martin Company working through the various phases of construction for the revamping of the heating and cooling systems at Bellevue East High School. The existing steam and chiller systems within the building are being replaced with a new Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heating and cooling system, which should prove to be a highly efficient mechanical that should provide significant energy savings to the District in the coming years. A significant amount of the classroom areas in the building have had the new units installed with work now moving into some of the larger open areas of the building (e.g. gyms, band rooms, common areas, etc…). A significant amount of work was completed in the Summer of 2018 with another significant amount of work scheduled over the Summer months of 2019.   It is anticipated that work should be completed on this $8.2 million project in early fall of 2019.

 

Bellevue East High School Roof Projects

A roofing project over the north gym area of Bellevue East was recently completed which replaced the existing roof system over the gym. A persistent leak in this area accelerated the scheduling of the roof replacement and activities are now being completed in a dry environment.

A larger roof replacement project for the building has been awarded to McCoy Construction for the replacement of various areas of roof systems around the building. This roofing project is being started in July of 2018 and will be completed in early Spring of 2019. Scheduling of work has revolved around ongoing school scheduling of students within the building and is being coordinated with the cooperation with the school administration.

Another separate roof project will be completed in replacement of the roof system over the main competition gym area. The work on this replacement will start in June of 2019 should be completed around September 1st (weather dependent).

Bellevue East Pool Maintenance Project

Work was completed on some miscellaneous maintenance work within the pool area at Bellevue East. The scope of work included refinishing of the pool finishes, installation of new starting blocks, installation of handrails in the seating areas, installation of slip-resistant flooring in the spectator walk areas, and miscellaneous pool equipment modifications.

   

Additional work is scheduled in the pool area in the Summer of 2019. This work will include the installation of a new pool ventilation system and replacement of the existing lighting system within the pool. It is anticipated that work in the pool area will be fully completed by early August of 2019.

Bellevue East Track
Renovations are planned in 2019 for the track at Bellevue East. The existing rubber surfacing at the track is at the end of its life expectancy and is starting to deteriorate. The existing rubber surfacing will be removed and replaced with a new black crumb rubber running surface. Minor repairs will be made to the existing asphalt surfacing underlayment prior to the installation of the new surfacing. Work is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-May 2019 and is anticipated to be completed in mid-Summer 2019.

HVAC Test
Work is ongoing with Lueder Construction and the Ray Martin Company on the first phase of construction for the revamping of the heating and cooling systems at Bellevue East High School.  The initial phase of the work involves a number of classrooms towards the east-central core of the building as well as the general shop and industrial arts area of the building.  A significant amount of work will be completed this summer on the $8.2 million project.

Work on the project will be ongoing during the 2018-2019 school year.  Approximately 5 to 6 classrooms will be taken off line with students being relocated in the building during the school year to allow the HVAC renovation work to proceed during the year.  After dismissal of the school year in the Spring of 2019, a significant amount of work will be going on again within the building to try to finish all of the work prior to the start of the 2019-2020 school year.

This project has been awarded to McCoy Construction Company and work will be completed in 2018 and extending into 2019 and will be coordinated and phased in with the concurrent HVAC project.

May 8, 2018 – Bellevue East

HVAC Project
Bids were received on March 26th, 2018 for the proposed renovation of the heating and cooling systems at Bellevue East High School. Some early previous estimates for the renovation and replacement of the existing system was anticipated to put the cost of the replacement at around $11 million. Bids on the project actually came in much lower than what was anticipated at $8.2 million. The Bellevue School Board voted on April 2nd to proceed with the project and award the project to Lueder Construction Company. Work on the project will begin in late May of 2018 after the end of the school year. The early estimates on the construction timelines puts completion of all of the work sometime in late 2019. Work will be phased through the building during the 2018-2019 school year with the 2018 and 2019 summers focusing on a lot of the major work.
