Dundee gives contracts for capital project

DUNDEE—Contracts for the second portion of the capital project at Dundee Central School were awarded during the Thursday, Nov. 4 meeting of the district board of education. Prior to voting, Craig Dailey of King & King Architects and Tom Cook of Bovis Lend Lease told the group bidding was very tight. The second phase is part of the $18 million capital project approved by voters in March 2009.
Site work at a bid of $2,071,000 was awarded to Ritter & Paratore Contracting of Utica and general construction at a bid of $1,409,700 was awarded to Andrew R. Mancini of Endicott. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) construction was awarded to Michael A. Ferrauilo Plumbing and Heating of Rochester, Electrical construction was awarded to Blackmon-Farrell Electrical of Rochester at a bid amount of $914,900 and plumbing construction to Nairy Mechanical of Webster at a bid amount of $37,600.
Total of bids awarded was $6,695,600. The District, Dailey and Cook were pleased with the number of bids and results received. The bids were lower than anticipated and budgeted. The favorable bid results along with contract costs that are less than anticipated for the nearly complete first phase may present the opportunity for consideration of additional work that was authorized as part of the referendum at a later date.
The first phase included extensive exterior masonry work. Completion of this phase is expected in early November. The upcoming work includes health and safety improvements, site work and major system improvements.
Included are new fire alarm and electrical distribution systems, installation of new heating and ventilation equipment. The second item includes installation of energy recovery heat exchangers in all univentilators and a digital control system for energy management purposes. Univentilators are the room’s main heating unit.
Site work will include the construction of a new all-weather track. Included will be event areas for triple/long jump, discus, shot put and steeplechase. The football field will be sodded. In addition to work on the fields, there will be a significant amount of paving and sidewalk work around the school facilities.
Work expected to take place during fall 2010 and continue through spring 2011 includes the electrical work and roughing in of piping, electric and wiring. This work will be done after the close of the instructional day and will take advantage of holidays and school break periods.
Work on the new track will begin in spring 2011 as soon as topsoil can be stripped. Once school is out of session in summer 2011 work will begin in earnest and continue through the opening of school in September. This construction cycle will continue through the fall and winter of 2012 when the project is anticipated to be completed. Use of the school district building and its grounds will be limited while the project is underway.
Construction update information will be available at the district website at www.dundeecs.org.ecs.org.
