Chandler USD board OKs contract for work at Weinberg School

The Chandler USD governing board approved Feb. 26 a $1.1 million contract to begin renovations at Weinberg School, which will transition to Weinberg Gifted Academy next academic year.

The scope of work will be completed in two phases, according to Assistant Superintendent Frank Fletcher, in order to minimize disruption on the campus during construction. The first phase will include a full replacement of the fire sprinkler system, demolition of existing ceilings and exterior soffits, paint, drywall demolition and replacement as necessary, procurement of interior and exterior lighting fixtures, construction of a Sally-Port, daily cleanup and site preparation for next day operation, and night and weekend work. A Sally-Port is a security measure, officials said, that would restrict access to the main campus and keep visitors in a front area until they are permitted to get on to the campus, and soffits are the exterior or interior of an architectural feature.


According to supporting documents attached to the board agenda, the first phase includes 15 classrooms, the media center and the current office wing. The anticipated construction schedule is March 9-July 14.
