October 14, 2019 – Birchcrest Elementary School

Work is being finished up on the renovation of Birchcrest Elementary School. The bulk of the work within the building was the renovation/replacement of the existing steam heating/ chiller cooling systems within the building with a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heating and cooling system. This is a highly energy efficient system that provides individual control in room areas and is anticipated that the new heating and cooling system will save a considerable amount of utility and maintenance savings to the District over the life of the system. Also included in the project was the inclusion of a new fire sprinkler system throughout the building and a new secured building entrance for the school.

Bellevue West
As part of the overall bond program, one of the major items planned in the Bond work is a new auditorium for Bellevue West. Some initial planning meetings have been held on the planned project and additional planning will be held over the next several months. It is anticipated that the planning work on this project will extend into early 2020 and is anticipated that construction will begin in the Summer of 2020.

Also scheduled for work to occur in 2020 will be the replacement of a significant area of the existing roof areas on the building that has been identified as in poor condition and where there is a lot of small areas of ongoing roof leaks. It is anticipated that this work will start in the Spring of 2020 and will continue through the summer of 2020.

October 14, 2019 – Lewis and Clark Middle School

Work was completed over the Summer of 2019 on the refurbishing of the existing running track at Mission Middle School. The existing track was an asphalt track that was experiencing some cracking ans separation. The base track surface cracks were repaired and the track was overlaid with a new crumb rubber surfacing. The track at Lewis and Clark is the only full 400 meter track at the BPS middle schools so this track was surfaced to be the primary middle school competition track for the District. The installation of the rubber surfacing will also qualify for a partial rebate from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality for use of recyclable materials on the project.
