Notes From 8.10.16 SCA Meeting

Please read the later bi-weekly report from the TNS Health and Safety Committee regarding building construction.

TOPLINE SUMMARY :  WALK THROUGH 8/10/16

The SCA feels very confident that, with the exception of east and west sides of building in limited stairwell areas, all scaffolding will be down and classrooms ready before students arrive on day 1 of school.  At this point, the SCA can say that the outside play area that has been the staging area may not be repaved by day 1 of school; the latest it will be completed will be two weeks into September. The play area will be no less than it was at the end of last school year. Recent rain has not been helpful, but Liro has compensated by doing work on Sundays.   

ITEMS OF INTEREST

  • 17 of the 42 remaining pieces of terra cotta roof arrived today. The rest are in transit. Though SCA does not expect to complete installing every Terra Cotta piece by day 1 of school, they will remove all scaffolding anyway.  The remaining roof stones will be installed by man lift after school hours.  This will necessitate the existence of a small lift crane barricaded on the 4th Street side of building.
  • 50% of new roof installation completed.
  • An extensive room-by-room walk through was conducted, identifying all remaining water damage and other damage.  SCA assures that all internal spaces will be repaired and professionally cleaned by August 29, when teachers arrive.  It is imperative that they coordinate and communicate with Willie, the building manager.

 

NEXT WALK THROUGH 8/31/16

Notes From 7.27.16 SCA Meeting

Please read the later bi-weekly report from the TNS Health and Safety Committee regarding building construction:

TOPLINE SUMMARY :  WALK THROUGH 7/27/16

Work remains on schedule to meet deadline of having scaffolding down and classrooms ready before students arrive on day 1 of school.  SCA is optimistic, that outside play area work may be complete by day 1 of school, as well, but this is a best case scenario likelihood of which SCA will know much better about in two weeks/next meeting.   The weather (NO RAIN!) has by and large been our friend.

ITEMS OF INTEREST

·         1,000 pieces of terra cotta have been installed. 42 remaining pieces of terra cotta roof expected to arrive in August.  More exact arrival time will be known by Monday, August 1.  Should the terra cotta arrive in a timely manner, and barring bad weather, the chances of having all scaffolding down by day 1 of school is very good.  Should the remaining terra cotta not arrive in timely manner,  the committee representatives  and SCA discussed a contingency plan of removing scaffolding by day 1 of school and installing remaining terra cotta by other means.

·         60% of roof has been cleared as of visit and new roof installation will begin this week.

·         Liro Construction fortunately discovered a drainage block in pipes, saving  the building a considerable amount of damage. Liro, building manager Wille and the committee identified all water damage to all classrooms and internal areas caused by past and present construction which Liro will remedy as part of their job.

·         SCA has agreed to assist in careful replanting of front of building garden plants as soon as practicable.

Next Meeting in 2 weeks.
