Project Scope of Work

Cherokee Street Elementary School


  • ADA walkways
    Furnish and install new ADA sidewalks to all existing playground areas. Both play areas will  receive a new 5'-0" wide sidewalk.

  • Casework Replacement
    The request was made to replace the existing cabinetry and storage cabinets in the existing art room. 

  • Vinyl Asbestos Floor Tile Abatement
    Replace all remaining asbestos floor tile and vinyl cove base. Bulk scrape all existing mastic. Furnish and install new vinyl composite tile, 6" rubber cove base. Proper floor prep prior to installing new flooring shall also be required. Work shall be completed in strict accordance with NYSDOL ICR 56.

  • Refurbishment of Library to create Media Center
    Convert existing library into a multi functional media center intended to expand students creativity where they can gain access to information and resources. The term used Is a "shared learning space". This will involve new furniture including flexible seating options, and shelving, ceiling and lighting replacement, replacement of existing flooring, the introduction of new A/C, electrical, demolition, technology a new circulation desk, finishes and carpentry. HVAC units will be located on second floor roof and ductwork will be extended down to first floor to provide cooling to the spaces. 

  • Ceiling Replacement
    Replace existing corridor ceiling and lighting at the link corridor to the 5th grade wing. The existing 2x4 ceiling is old and sagging and we would recommend replacing with a new 2x2 ceiling to match the rest of the building. Additionally replace the tin ceiling in stair tower adjacent to room 112

  • HVAC Reconstruction
    Replacement of existing pneumatic controls to DDC at multiple locations throughout the building. This work was not part of the 2014 capital projects.

  • Exterior Masonry Reconstruction
    Repoint existing brick chimney and install new poured concrete chimney cap. 

  • Exterior Soffit Reconstruction
    Remove section of aluminum over plywood soffits around the 5th grade wing. Furnish and install new porcelain enamel panel from underside of fascia down to top of brick. (36" +/-). Install continuous drip edge between bottom of new panels and top of brick ledge.

  • Playgrounds
    The request was made to replace/add additional playground structures for the K-2 aged children as well as a new swing set for the older aged children. Work will include removals, equipment, footings and safety surfacing. 

  • Replace Existing underground Electric Service
    Replace existing incoming Primary lines from street to existing pad mounted transformer. 

  • Loading Dock Reconstruction
    Due to the slope and configuration of the existing loading dock, off loading and deliveries are some what difficult to take place due to the lack of space in and around the area. The recommendation would be to remove the bumpers and railing, and infill the ramp area to bring the ramp up to grade. The railing will be replaced and new bollards will be installed.

  • Site drainage and parking lot reconstruction
    The South parking lot and North end of the bus loop are prone to flooding during heavy rain storms. The recommendation would be to increase drainage along the bus loop to address this issue. We would then seal coat the bus loop and North lot and line stripe. The South lot should be completely renovated and additional drainage structures should be added. Currently the only drainage is in the NE corner of the South lot. The work would include demolition, drainage, curbing and full depth asphalt pavement.

  • Additional parking 
    The request was made to increase the number of parking spaces in the South lot. One way to address this issue, would be to change the orientation of the existing asphalt play and then incorporate half of  the play area as well as the grass/dirt area to the south of the asphalt play area to create +/- 20 additional parking spaces. This plan would require the removal of 2 existing oak trees.
