The district is ready to go to RIDE for approval and then out to bid for construction services. The presentation on this link shows more detailed drawings and information about what will be in the base bid and what will be in bid alternates.
Late October, 2019 Architect Presentation
The architects are close to completing detailed drawings (DD) for the additions and renovations for the elementary buildings. A formal vote on the DD will be done in early November, prior to a RIDE review. This link shows the renderings and plans presented on October 28, 2019. Also at that meeting, discussions about the traffic anticipated at McCabe was discussed. In addition to a review by a traffic engineer, the schools are investigating improving procedures and practices that will alleviate concerns.
Early October, 2019 Architect Presentation
Meetings with the architects, building committee and educators continue to generate plans for furniture, technology, and other details about the building project. This link shows the renderings and plans presented in October.
September, 2019 Architect Presentation
Each meeting of the building committee and each meeting with RIDE brings us closer to a final design document. The renderings of the facilities show schools that will be the pride of the community. While schools will not be entirely new, the building committee's mission is to complete additions on all three buildings and do as much renovations to existing parts of the buildings as is possible with the funding available. Additionally, improved bus and parent drop off areas at all three buildings and updated entryways will improve safety and security. To view the architects' presentation of plans, click here.
Late Summer, 2019 Design Documents
The building committee, working with our OPM and architects, continue to revise the floor plans and overall design of additions and renovations in order to ensure that funding will be available for all phases of this project. We also are ensuring that all programs have adequate space and that the site plan ensures safe and efficient dropoffs and security features. The plans, below, will be reviewed by RIDE prior to moving on to more detailed architectural drawings and are subject to change. We present them here so that the public can see the evolution of changes and the careful work of our team.
