Construction Updates

Phase 2 encompasses the grand lady on Sherman Avenue also known as the former high school and now the Middle School as the first building to experience major renovation with design and engineering nearing completion with bidding scheduled for February 2018. The project is complex and what you may not have seen over the past year is the task of prioritization, design, scoping, and budget reconciliation that is happening. We are reviewing products, evaluating their impact on student learning and long range budget as well as creating timelines for the least amount of disruption to learning.
Some of the extensive work that is on the horizon at Norwood Middle School:
- The addition of heating, air conditioning and ventilation with individual room temperature controls
- New plumbing and fixtures
- Updated fire and safety systems
- New roofs
- Lighting replacement and controls with energy saving features such as occupancy detection
- Improved access for students with the disabilities
- Upgraded electrical systems to meet technology and other needs
- Improved technology connections
- Locker replacement
- Ceilings
