Board of Ed Selects Contractor for Clemente Middle School Roofing Project

February 13, 2015

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

   Once the Board of Education put the bell-times issue to bed at Tuesday’s meeting, the Board awarded a number contracts for work to be done at Germantown area schools as part of its consent agenda.

   The Board approved a $1.5 million contract to Gaithersburg-based Interstate Corp. for the reroofing project at Roberto W. Clemente Middle School. In the resolution the Board indicated that Interstate Corp was the low bidder for the project and met the Maryland Department of Transportation Minority Business Enterprise criteria. Interstate has submitted certification that the company is 20 percent owned by women.

 

   The Board also approved a fee increase for the architectural firm which is designing the proposed revitalization of Seneca Valley High School.

   Gaithersburg-based Moseley Architects was granted an increased fee of $412,725 for additional professional architectural and engineering services for the increased scope of the Seneca Valley High School revitalization project. The scope of the work increased when the Board approved an additional 17 classrooms.

   The Preliminary Plans brochure which was released last month and prepared by Moseley Architects says, “Based on the condition of the existing facility and the cost to bring the school into compliance with code requirements, the most cost effective solution is to construct a replacement facility adjacent to the existing school. The capacity of the school will increase from 1,374 students to 2,423 students with a core capacity for 2,400 students. The increased capacity to Seneca Valley High School provides the opportunity to address projected overutilization of nearby Clarksburg and Northwest high schools through student reassignments in the future.”

   The brochure estimates that the construction contracts would be awarded by the Board of Education in July of 2016, with building to be completed by August of 2018 and the site to be completed by August 2019. The cost for the new school contraction is estimated to be $130 million.
