Approve Acceptance of Project for Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and Interior Finishes Renovation at Edison Elementary School

The heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in the original school building at Edison Elementary School had deteriorated to the point that urgent renovation was required to ensure classroom availability for the 2016-17 school year.  Leaks from the HVAC system over time had damaged ceilings and cabinets necessitating their replacement in conjunction with the project.

On April 24, 2016, the Board appointed Carruthers & Associates-Architects, P.A. and Allstate Construction, Inc. to provide design and construction management services for a project to accomplish the needed renovations.  The project scope included interior painting and some flooring replacement to improve the educational environment in both the original building and cafeteria.  Replacement of the steam heating system with electric heating was part of the HVAC replacement.  Installation of a new fire sprinkler system was also included.  The project also included significant abatement of asbestos and lead-based paint, required by the scope.

The design professional has certified that the work is complete in accordance with the plans and specifications and other contract documents and recommends Board Acceptance.
