Even as this school year comes to a close, we are already looking forward to a new year and are particularly excited about the upcoming renovations to Kelly and Turner Elementary Schools. We believe the upgrades to both buildings will make Kelly and Turner learning environments that students and teachers can be proud of.
Our preliminary plan and timeline:
Over the summer, the Board will submit drawings for the renovation projects to the Borough for approval, followed by reviewing requests for proposals from construction management services. Renovations to both schools will include upgrading building systems such as heating, cooling, plumbing, lighting and safety/security technology; replacing exterior windows and doors, repairing masonry, repainting, installing news ceilings and floors, as well as making ADA and Code improvements.
The bidding process for construction management services will start in November 2016 with construction to begin the next month. Over the course of 2017, construction of both schools will be completed in phases – students and teachers will still attend class at Kelly and Turner but will be shifted around as the buildings are renovated section by section.
Our plan is for the renovations to be completed by December 2017.
