  • Project updates: December 15, 2015

    On Dec. 15, SCASD Director of Physical Plant Ed Poprik, State College Area School District Board of School Directors President Amber Concepcion and board member Gretchen Brandt spoke about the State High Project at the Centre Region Council of Governments meeting. The trio briefed COG representatives on the project’s costs and progress.

    At this stage, the construction management team is securing the necessary permits and making other preparations to begin the first demolition work on the western wing of the South Building early next year. A winter start date has not been established yet, and work is not anticipated over the holiday break. Poprik compared the project now to a train getting underway, noting it needs a bit of time to gain speed and move forward.

  • Project updates: November 30, 2015

    On Monday, Nov. 30, the State College Area School District Board of School Directors awarded construction base bids and bid alternates for the State High Project.

    • The seven low base bids — general contractor, sitework, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire protection and food service equipment —  totalled $117,023,100.
    • The Board voted to award $3,479,000 of bid alternate options, rejecting $15,066,800 worth of others.
    • Accepted bid alternates included air conditioning and locker room renovations in the existing North Building gym, a North Building solar array, a district satellite kitchen, a roof greenhouse and stage panel lights.
    • The Board voted to reject the vegetated roof and Innovation Center bid alternate options. But in each case, it approved a motion to direct the district administration to research “best-value options” for a substitute project in the future.
    • With base bids, alternate bids and soft costs, the project’s total cost to the district will be $137,249,182. This reflects the district receiving two LEED grants of about $4 million for the project.
