Phase 1 Goals

Junior High/High School

*All budgeted costs are approximate at this stage and will be finalized during the design stage.

Roofing 

Approximately $3.9 million

The existing roofing system includes up to four different types of roofing, depending on the area of the building. Portions of the membrane roofing that are currently out of warranty will be replaced, as will portions of the modified bitumen roofing. The existing slate tile roofing will be refurbished in all locations. The refurbishment will include replacing individual tiles that are cracked, broken or missing. Flashings, as a part of all roofing replacements, will be reworked. Components of the gutter and downspout system will be repaired and/or replaced as a part of the work.

Interior Renovations

Approximately $500,000

The replacement of a number of heating, plumbing and electrical systems will require ceiling and wall areas to be opened, eventually patched and repaired, following the improvements to the engineering systems. Flooring will also be patched and repaired as required to address areas of sanitary sewer piping replacement. There may be some limited woodwork replacement, following heating system piping installations.

Any asbestos bearing materials that are disturbed as a part of the project will be completely removed in accordance with approved methods.

There will be limited efforts needed for interior renovations in the 2005 additions.

Plumbing

Approximately $1.2 million

A portion of the existing sanitary piping will be replaced throughout the facility with the exception of the 2005 additions. Likewise, portions of the existing domestic galvanized water piping will be replaced with new copper piping in all by the 2005 additions.

A number of plumbing fixtures include urinals, water closets, and lavatories will be replaced as a part of the overall piping system replacement.

The central domestic water heating system will be replaced in its entirety.

Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

Approximately $7.2 million

The existing central steam boiler plant will be replaced in its entirety with a new, heating water condenser boiler plant. The replacement will result in substantial reductions in gas usage and will provide for much better control of the building heating system. The existing 2005 addition will remain “as is.”

The existing steam and condensate return piping will be replaced throughout, except for in the 2005 addition. The work will include new piping, insulation, pumps and controls.

There are two central ventilation fans located in the lowest level of the high school and junior high school. Both units will be removed and replaced with new, dedicated outdoor air units. After cleaning and repair, the existing ductwork system to each classroom will be retained to transport ventilation air from new units to each classroom space. New four-pipe fan coil units will be installed in the classrooms, providing complete heating and air conditioning in those classrooms not currently air conditioning.

Chill water coils will be added to the existing auditorium air system to effectively cool the existing auditorium space.

The existing air handling units for each gymnasium will be removed and replaced with new units that include both heating and cooling capacity.

A number of heating/cooling systems installed in 2000 and 2005 (administration areas, science wing, newest locker rooms, orchestra area and second floor classrooms) will remain and be maintained for quality operation.

A number of exhaust systems throughout the facilities will be replaced with new fans and ductwork will be cleaned and repaired.

New, electronic temperature controls will be installed, replacing all existing electric and pneumatic controls. Existing and new heating and cooling units will have the new electronic controls installed. Temperature controls in the 2005 addition will also be replaced in order to provide consistency throughout the facility.

A new, central chilled water plant, including an outdoor, air-cooled water chiller, pumps, piping, and controls, will be installed. The chilled water piping will be routed to all air handling units and room fan coil units.

Electrical

Approximately $1.3 million

A new, incoming electrical service is being installed to account for adding air conditioning to the facility, along with needed repairs and updating switchboards and panel boards. Removal and updating of some of the building disconnect switches is included in the work.

Light fixtures in corridors, gymnasiums, auditorium, cafeteria and kitchen will be replaced with new LED lamping. Revised circuiting is included as needed for the fixture upgrading.

Updated circuiting is included for added or replaced receptacles (wall plugs) throughout the facility.

Disconnect of old equipment and reconnect for new heating and cooling equipment has been included in the project.

Technology and Security

Approximately $1.9 million

The existing analog phone system will be replaced with a new, electronic, IP phone system.

Data cabling throughout the facility will be upgraded from Category 5 cable to Category 6A, to provide for increased technology speed and to prepare the school for future changes.

The existing fiber backbone throughout the facility will be upgraded from 62.5 multi-mode fiber to a 50 micron multi-mode fiber. The change will increase the fiber network from 1Gb to 10Gb.

The existing network edge switching throughout the building will be upgraded to be prepared for a future 10Gb network.

The existing wireless network access points licensing agreements are due to expire in May 2019. New access points are included in the project to increase connectivity and speed.

A new access control system will be included with the project for better and more complete security for entering the building.

The project includes an upgrading to interior and exterior video surveillance cameras to high resolution, IP cameras and tracking system.
