Bloomingdale – A large number of facility projects are going to be finished over this summer. The projects include paving, roof replacement and removal of asbestos.
George Hagl, the business administrator of the school district, says
work has started already at the Samuel Donald School where floor tiles containing asbestos are being removed from stairwells and hallways of the 1938 portion of school and from a classroom. The education board hired an Iselin company (called Fine Wall Corporation) for the work. The company had submitted a $34,800 bid for installing latest vinyl flooring in the Samuel Donald School. In addition, Fine Wall Corporation will carry out other flooring works in the school district, which will cost the district approximately $16,000.
Apart from this, a damaged ceiling in basement maintenance office and a plaster wall will be torn down. Asbestos-containing pipe covering also will be eliminated from that area. The wall demolition task and the asbestos abatement project is said to be finished by 13th July, Hagl said.
According to Hagl, the flat roof portions at the school also are going
to be replaced. The district has hired a Farmingdale company called
‘Roof Maintenance’ for the work. The company submitted a $242,500 base bid for roofing project. The school district also approved alternate roofing. As part of the work, 2 other roof portions will be replaced at an expense of $32,000 and an addition portion of roof will be replaced, along with related canopy repairs, for $10,000.
Broken storm lines would be replaced from the school. The school will also repave the parking lot as the installation of new lines is
completed. Mike Fitzpatrick and Son of Oak Ridge has won the contract for this, after submitting a $128,700 base bid.
Bathroom renovations also will be there at the Samuel Donald School. The winning bidder is Rockaway Company called TQM Construction, which submitted a 67,600 base bid. TQM will install a new ceiling track as well, to be used for a mechanical lift. The job will cost $5,000.
Walter Bergen School will install new backstops, poles and basketball hoops, Hagl said. It will also replace a chain link section. The job will be handled by Mike Fitzpatrick and Son. The cost for those would be $4,500 each. The company, which submitted a 41,300 bid, has also won the contract for installing a sewer line at the school and for paving the school’s lower parking lot. The basketball court portion also will be paved by the company.
