    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.

  • Refurbishment of Library to create Media Center
    Construct an addition to the west of the existing library and reclaim the existing small office spaces. This will allow for the creation of a new computer lab that can not be located directly adjacent to the existing library. Currently Duffield is the only school where the computer lab is separate from the library. Convert existing computer lab to teaching space. 

  • Sidewalk and curb replacement & ADA sidewalks
    The existing curbing and concrete sidewalks along the bus loop are in need of replacement. The sidewalks have settled over the years leaving tripping hazards along the entire bus loop.

  • HVAC Reconstruction 
    Replace existing  supply and return lines within boiler room. There are 3 rooms that have been split into smaller teaching spaces. These rooms are 132, 136 and 137. The split portion of the rooms were left with no form of mechanical fresh air ventilation. We recommend new HVAC units be installed in these spaces to provide necessary ventilation.
