Summary: In preparation for the Western Albemarle High School Science Lab Addition & Modernization project that is scheduled for construction beginning June of 2018, it was determined that ACPS will issue a Request for Proposals on May 16, 2017 for design and construction administration services.

The project scope will include both new science facilities and renovations to existing classrooms. We are estimating needing an additional 10,000 square feet to expand the science facilities. New spaces shall include three learning labs, an office, prep rooms with storage and project spaces for independent and collaborative learning. With the exception of one lab that was renovated when the Environmental Science Academy opened, the remaining science labs will be modernized. This will include reconfiguration of space, replacing casework, updating finishes & lighting, improving day lighting, adding additional power outlets and replacing furniture. In addition to the science lab project, 6 existing classrooms will be modernized throughout the building. This project will build on recent modernization projects completed in the media center, corridors and 2nd floor classrooms.

A portion of the renovated areas will be completed in August of 2018 with the remaining renovations and addition completed by August of 2019. The total project budget is approximately $6 million.

In accordance with School Board Policy FEA - Facility Design, an Architectural/Engineering Selection Committee is to be appointed jointly by the School Board and the Superintendent, when the fee for such services will exceed $100,000. As such, staff recommends the following as members of the Western Albemarle High School Science Lab Addition & Modernization Architectural/Engineering Selection Committee:

Sheila Hoopmann- Capital Projects Manager
Rosalyn Schmitt- Assistant Director of Facilities Planning
Robbie Munsie- Instructional Coach (Interviews & Final Selection Only)
Lisa Glass- Albemarle County Project Manager
Funding: The Western Albemarle High School Science Lab Addition & Modernization will be funded through the 2016 Bond Referendum.
