USD 383 Board of Education, Jan. 16, 2019

Kathy Dzewaltowski, observer

The district’s Facilities and Growth Committee had interviewed several firms for architecture and construction services for the projects associated with the 2018 bond.  The recommendations were presented to the board.  For design services for early learning sites, elementary renovations and a new elementary building, and additions to the middle schools, BG Consultants and Alloy Architecture of Wichita were recommended.  For design services at the high school and for support services, Gould Evans was the recommendation.  Gould Evans had previously worked on the high school for the projects associated with the 2008 bond.  The board approved a motion to direct administration to negotiate contracts with these firms.

For construction management-at-risk services for the early learning sites and elementary buildings, the recommendation was to use BHS Construction and Hutton Construction.  For construction management-at-risk services for the high school and middle school projects, the recommendation was to use McCownGordon Construction.  The board approved a motion to direct administration to negotiate contracts with these firms.

The board also approved a contract to conduct a parking study.  Projects associated with the 2018 bond will potentially change parking needs at many of the attendance centers.  For example, ninth graders will be moving to the main high school campus, 6th grade will move from the elementary buildings to the middle schools, etc.
