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.

A bid has not yet been awarded for construction of the new high school. It is expected to open in 2024 and will replace the existing facility at 1015 Division St.
