Public Hearing: FY 2019 Budget
Mr. Richardson said that the plan does not include additional space, core space improvements, additional parking, playground replacement, ADA improvements, energy efficiency, or traffic improvements. He explained that the firm is working with the District to review the pilot learning spaces to determine how those will fit into the plan.
The architects outlined the scope of work needed at each building. Some needs that must be addressed throughout all buildings include health-safety issues including:
- Door frame corrosion
- Torn and unraveling carpeting
- Roof deterioration and drainage issues
- Water pipe replacement
The cost estimate for the work is $82M-$83M over 10 years.
The master facility plan is a living document that the District will continue to review and expand. Based on the initial plan, FGM proposes several additional studies, including:
- Masonry evaluation
- Space utilization study
- Mechanical systems redesign
- Restroom remodeling (for scope and ADA components)
- Traffic and parking
- Energy reduction measures
At the next meeting, the Board will review the financial dimensions of the plan as well as the cost and time to complete the additional studies.
