McMahon Masonry Restoration Ltd. of Cleveland, Ohio will be repairing exterior masonry on all buildings.  Some of the bricks will be replaced.  The steel above certain windows will be inspected, painted and repaired as necessary.

North Bay Construction, Inc. of Westlake, Ohio is working on Heating systems at the High School, Normandy, Westerly and Glenview.  Boilers, mechanical equipment and piping in the boiler room at each building will being removed and replaced.   Modern, high efficiency boilers will be installed.   At Westerly and Normandy new uni-vents (heat and ventilation) will be installed in each classroom.

Gateway Electric of Cleveland, Ohio will be removing the electrical distribution system at the High School, Normandy and Glenview.  This will include the main service to the building.  Every electrical panel will be replaced (over 50 panels at the high school).  Capacity will be increased where needed.   At the high school, a new generator with greater capacity will be installed.

And the progress continues:

How can all of this work get done during the summer?

Demolition started in the boiler rooms in May.  Use of the buildings will be restricted during construction.  This allows the contractors to work without adjustments necessary to protect building occupants.  Some contractors will work two shifts during the summer to complete their work.   Some of the final details can be completed in early Fall when school is in session. 

How long will it take to complete all projects?

The current projects will be complete early in the 2013-14 school year.  There will be many projects ahead.  Because school will remain in session, and because all systems are currently operational, the projects will take place over a three year period.  By taking our time we can reduce disruption and maximize our dollars.

A comprehensive upgrade of school building infrastructure – systems like boilers, electrical, and ventilation replacements – is covered in a bond issue request approved by Bay Village voters on November 6, 2012.

The bond issue will raise $16.8 million, with the bonds paid back over a 25-year period. The 1.96 mill bond issue will cost homeowners approximately $5 per month, or $60 annually, for every $100,000 of home valuation.
