LATEST UPDATES

February 21, 2019 – Lied Activity Center

After 15 years of wear, the existing floor and track systems at the Lied Activity Center was replaced in 2018 with a new rubber floor overlay system similar to the previous floor. It is anticipated that the new flooring system should have a life expectancy of another 15+ years.

It is also planned that work will be ongoing in the Summer of 2019 to complete renovations and repairs to the existing pool and some associated pool equipment. Plans are currently being developed for the planned work with actual work to be scheduled on availability of contractors and materials.

February 21, 2019 – Birchcrest Elementary School

Work is scheduled to begin in mid-May on the renovation of Birchcrest Elementary School. The bulk of the work within the building will be the renovation/replacement of the existing boiler 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 is the inclusion of a new fire sprinkler system throughout the building and a new secured building entrance for the school.

Also included in ongoing work for this summer is the replacement of the existing roof system over the entire building. The existing roof system was previously identified in a previously conducted roof survey as a roof system in need for replacement due to age and ongoing roof issues. It is anticipated that the bulk of the work included in this project will be completed by early August, which coincides with the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Due to the size of the HVAC project, there may be some remaining work that will be ongoing into September, but it is anticipated that all work in the building will be completed by early fall 2019.

February 21, 2019 – Central Elementary School

Work is scheduled to begin in mid-May on the renovation of Central Elementary School. The bulk of the work within the building will be 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 is the inclusion of a new fire sprinkler system throughout the building and a new secured building entrance for the school.

Also included in ongoing work for this summer is the replacement of the existing roof system over the entire building.

February 21, 2019 – Logan Fontenelle Middle School

Bleacher Replacement: Work will begin later in March 2019 to replace the bleachers in the main gym at Logan Fontenelle with bleacher installation being completed by Heartland Seating Company. The new seating will replace the existing wood bleachers with new retractable contoured plastic bench seats. The installation schedule of the new bleachers is being coordinated with the school administration and should be completed around the first week of April 2019.

Chiller Replacement: Also occurring at Logan Fontenelle will be the replacement of the existing chiller system serving the main cooling system for the building. The existing chiller unit was tentatively scheduled for replacement in roughly 2020, but due to 2 of the 3 compressor units failing in the chiller, the District has expedited the replacement of the chiller rather than expending money for repairs that will be wasted when the unit is replaced. The new chiller unit installation will be occurring during the month of March 2019 and should be completed by April 1st.

Roof Project: The Summer of 2019 will also include the replacement of several roof areas at Logan Fontenelle that were identified as areas in poor condition. The roofing work was recently bid and recommendations will go to the Board in March 2019 for approval. It is anticipated that roof installation will begin in late May 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by August 8th, 2019, which coincides with the start of the 2019-2020 school year.

HVAC System Updates: It is planned that replacement and upgrades in the HVAC system within the building will occur in the Summer of 2020. Plans will be prepared and bids received by the end of 2019 to allow the work to begin in May of 2020.
