Capital Project Planning Starts at B-G
The survey was conducted by a team of architects and took several months to complete. They entered each of the buildings, crawls spaces, roofs, parking lots etc. An item by item analysis of the entire district was created and assigned a phase based on need. Unfortunately, our B-G campus has many high priority items falling under Phase 1 that need immediate attention. This list of Phase 1 items has created the upcoming Capital Project.
Much of the work required is not glamorous. Our buildings need new roofs, drainage, security measures, clocks, alarms, doors, boilers etc. The track surface is now 16 years old and its life expectancy was 15 years. Our playgrounds at the elementary buildings are aging with sections that have been disassembled or roped off due to safety concerns.
The district recently hired the architectural firm of King and King out of Syracuse, NY and the Construction Management firm of Le Chase out of Binghamton, NY to manage this project. We held our kick-off meeting on November 8, 2016 to map out a timeline of the different phases of this project. Project information will be sent to all taxpayers, posted on the website and on our Facebook page. Opportunites to tour the school facilities to see the state and conditions of our facilities will be planned.
As we move forward prior to the public vote sometime in March 2017, please contact Timothy Ryan, Superintendent of Schools with any questions that you might have.
