Architecture and Construction
9.1 New Construction
The new construction sub-division oversees just that, new construction. Beginning with meeting and coordinating with architects and engineers on the design and continuing on to working with local building departments and other jurisdictions for permitting. The process ultimately results in bidding of the projects to result in construction and contract administration.
9.2 Older School Improvements
In September 1998 Applied Management Engineering, Inc. (AME) prepared a Facility Condition Assessment of all Washoe County School District facilities. This assessment recommended $80,000,000 of upgrades and improvements and prioritized these projects for completion by the School District. In March 1998 the Board of Trustees authorized the expenditure of $15,000,000 from the 1998 Bond issue for upgrading and improvement of existing School District facilities in the priority order outlined by AME. The breakdown of the $15,000,000 is as follows:
A remodel modification is defined as a change to a building and or site component at a facility. If something does not exist and you would like to add it, or something exists and you would like to modify or change it, that is considered aa remodel request. If something exists but does not work correctly or is broken, that is a maintenance request.
