The meeting began at 6:00 p.m. at Betz Elementary.
Bellevue East HVAC – Ralph Gladbach of GP Architecture gave an update on the Bellevue East HVAC system upgrade. The design team on the project is working towards having the final construction documents completed and bidding to begin by the end of February. These bids would be presented to the Board at the April 2nd Board meeting. Mr. Gladbach researched six different manufactures and it was determined there will be an overall bid package request sent to Dyken, LG, Trane, and Mitsubishi. All of these manufactures do have local representatives that can service the equipment, along with a quick turnaround time for delivery of equipment. These bids would be requested by the end of March, to be present at the April 2nd Board meeting. Also, Mr. Gladbach is determining the final schedule pending the mechanical engineer’s timeframe.
There will be minimal demolition completed on the old system at Bellevue East. The boilers/chillers will be removed, along with some fan coils and duct work pending the locations. This is per the engineers plans. From a district standpoint at this time the old equipment will not be removed, unless there is a safety issue. Also, as other projects are completed in classrooms and in the building, some of the demolition work may be completed at that time. The district will not solicit bids for the demolition work.
