This is the sixth in a series of posts about the capital project needs of the Springville school district. In this series, I am describing the proposed scope of work in each of our buildings. Today we focus on needs at the District Office, Concession Stand, Greenhouse and Press Box.
The District offices do not receive state aid in the way that our school buildings do (79.3%). Therefore, I have removed all but two (2) items from the sixteen (16) items proposed in December 2015. All that remains are the replacement of the roof and installation of heat trace tape to scupper drains, totaling $343,000.
There is work required at the Concession Stand and that remains the same as the scope brought before the public in December, totaling $15,000. We are not proposing any work at the Transportation Building, the Field House Building or the Colden Elementary Tractor Garage.
Our Pressbox needs to be replaced with a new code compliant Pressbox. And our Green House, which was to be demolished in the December 2015 project and yet provides instructional space for our FFA coursework, will need to have the hot water heating boiler replaced, an installation of a backflow preventor on incoming water service, replacement of older electrical equipment and devices and replacement of exterior doors and windows. The work on the Pressbox totals $176,000 and the Green House totals $130,000. If you’re thinking you could build a home for $176,000, please know that’s exactly what our Facilities Committee said and the plan moving forward will be to work to decrease that number to the extent possible.
This post concludes the review of the proposed scope of work in all of our school buildings. Tomorrow I will review the costs to the taxpayer as evaluated by our financial advisors.
