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.
