Since 2011, the Depew Union Free School District has consistently reviewed its facilities and their mechanical systems through a Building Conditions Survey, which is used to develop our future plans for facility improvements.
The District utilizes a Facility Improvement Team (FIT) that meets with our architect to review the future plans and information collected during the Building Conditions Survey.
The Depew School Community's input is always vital for FIT to consider in its decision making process. With that in mind, we once again used Thoughtexchange, so everyone had a chance to share their perspectives and for us to understand what’s most important to the school community.
As presented last Spring, this timeline will allow us to package the project to be sent to NYSED in early 2022 with a potential approval in the fall of 2022. We can then take advantage, as we have in the past, of bidding the project in January of 2023. Bidding in January has always been very favorable for us, as we have come out under budget each time by approximately $1.5 million.
