CEDAR FALLS — The Board of Education Monday will consider approving two agreements related to construction of a new high school.
The board meets at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers of Cedar Falls City Hall, 220 Clay St. Due to COVID-19 precautions, City Hall is closed to the public.
People can access and participate in the meeting through Zoom video conferencing. Details on how to connect can be found at the top of the meeting agenda posted on district’s website at cfschools.org/school-board/meetings. The meeting can be viewed on the Cedar Falls cable channel 15 or on its YouTube live stream.
Contracts for “building commissioning” are expected to be approved for heating, ventilating and air conditioning and for the exterior “envelope” of the new Cedar Falls High School. The building is to be located on about 70 acres off West 27th St. west of Hudson Road. Commissioning serves as extra insurance that the building performs as intended, with each company contracted to laboratory and field test all items upon completion.
For the HVAC systems, Cedar Falls Community Schools’ officials recommend a $150,000 contract with Systemworks of West Des Moines, the lowest of five bids received. For the school’s exterior, a $106,845 contract with Resource Building Envelope Specialists of Pierce City, Mo., is recommended. It is the lowest of two bids received.
