Adamstown school repairs slated for 2013
By: JAMES MCGINNIS Review Correspondent, Staff Writer
Officials in the Cocalico Area School District anticipate major repair work being done on the Adamstown Elementary School next year.
Members of the school board announced plans at the district’s meeting Sept. 17 to replace the roof and climate control system at the school next summer. A.E.M. architects of Berks County will be facilitating the design of the new roof and air system and bid process.
District Secretary Sherri Stull noted that the building’s current roof was constructed 21 years ago and was only expected to last 15 years.
"It has outlived its estimated lifetime by six years," she said. "That is pretty impressive."
Board members also pointed out that the climate control systems were showing signs of aging and expressed a desire to replace the units with newer, more energy efficient models.
Stull gave a preliminary estimate of the project’s cost at $675,000. However, she also noted that the district will not be putting the project out to bid until January.
"We are hoping that the bids come in better," she said. This is just a rough, early estimate."
The project is expected to begin in June and last most of the summer, but work is expected to be finished before the start of the 2013-14 school year. "It will have to start after the staff and kids are out," Stull said.
Superintendent Bruce Sensenig announced that district residents are invited to check out two other recent construction projects at an open house that is scheduled to be held Oct. 21 at the Denver Elementary School. He said that the event would give residents the opportunity to check out the recently completed new 12-classroom wing on the school.
Attendees will also be able to tour the high school’s newly renovated gymnasium, including the recently added weight and cardio rooms and tennis courts.
