On Wednesday, January 4, the Deer Park Schools Executive Design Team met with Architects from SHP (Steed Hammond and Paul) as well as with the chosen Amity construction management firm of HGC to begin moving the Amity School project forward. Many topics were covered at this meeting, including:
- Reviewing of construction quotes for important first steps in construction such as site surveys of utilities and toppgraphy;
- Soil borings;
- Abatement design for safe removal of any hazardous materials; and,
- Discussions of construction timelines for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing aspects of the Amity renovation.
The lead architect from SHP Lead Design, Charlie Jahnigan, also announced plans for an Open Community Forum to be held in Crawford Auditorium on January 23, 2017 at 6 PM. This is a great opportunity for the community to see a more in-depth look at the plans and progress already taking place for the Amity Projects so work can begin on the renovation as soon as school lets out in May.
