Scope of Work

Due to the amount of work to be done, this project will be split in to three phases. 

Phase 1 - Completed 

There will be be a chiller plant replacement, alts for new water heaters, summer boiler, and urinal flush valve upgrades. This phase has been completed. 

Phase 2

Interior and exterior lighting replacement, with a focus on the cafeteria, the adjacent main stairs, the balcony, Special Education classrooms, and bathrooms.
