D. East Windsor High School Boiler Replacement Project
Fuss & O’Neill Enviroscience inspected the High School boiler and found that only a small amount of asbestos would need to be abated. The approximate cost would be $3,100. The boiler jacket was actually wool.
Al Jacunski from JH Architects along with Steve Durkee, mechanical engineer stated that $393,000 was not sufficient funding for the project. Al discussed each
of the proposal details. Steve explained the affect of inflation on the costs. A study would need to be done to calculate the fresh air value. Domestic hot water options were discussed. A proposed amount of $514,670 would be a safe amount to budget. The project specifications should be ready to put out on the street by December or January.
Tim discussed the budget amount from CIP by line. Tim also discussed the indoor air quality requirements. 56.02% is the current reimbursement rate from the state if they require air quality standards but that funding may be available.
The committee discussed Al Jucunski’s proposal. A special meeting was scheduled for John Aulisio, EDM to attend.
