The Pleasanton school board has awarded contracts for planned flooring and resurfacing projects as well as prospective Measure I1 bond project work after voters passed the district’s $270 million facilities bond measure.
Trustees awarded contracts to five architectural firms recommended by district administration to assist with the planning, bidding and construction of bond program projects.
They did not award any specific project to the architects; rather, the approval makes each firm available for future bond projects. The administration will later decide which projects would be assigned to which firm.
The district selected these firms to recommend to the board following a request for proposals process that netted 25 responses. A panel interviewed 14 firms and came away with their top five Aedis Architects, Hibser Yamauchi Architects, HKIT Architects, LPA, Inc. and Sugimura Finney Architects.
The board also approved separate flooring and resurfacing contracts.
Trustees awarded a nearly $65,000 contract to Sheldrake & Mumford, Inc. for the resurfacing of Amador Valley High's eight tennis courts. The company was the only certified, responsible and responsive bidder following a request for proposals, according to the school district.
The project will be funded by a donation from former PUSD teacher Don Anger. Work is expected to begin in mid-May and be completed around the first week of June.
The board also approved a $354,769 contract with Continental Flooring for replacement of the flooring in the multipurpose rooms at Mohr Elementary and Hart Middle and in the small gym at Foothill High. Those projects will begin around the start of winter break and be completed around the end of the recess.
