SHERBURNE – District administrators are taking it day-by-day when it comes to working around building renovations that are unfortunately still underway at the Sherburne-Earlville Middle/High School.
The building is not yet fully functional, as anticipated by this time.
The $25.2 million multi-year capital building project was begun in 2009. Students are currently enjoying use of the new pool, wrestling and fitness areas, two of the latest projects completed.
Assistant Superintendent Todd Griffin said general contractors Park City Builders and architect Bearsch Compeau Knudson of Binghamton are currently renovating the chorus room and the staging, lighting and sound control booth in the auditorium. In addition, the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and geothermal systems are still not finished in half of the building.
“There’s still a lot of work to do to, particularly when it comes to the HVAC. They have to balance classrooms. It’s (controls and fan systems) pretty complex,” he said. “We have been very pleased with their work. It’s just that it’s taking a lot longer. We are just taking it as it comes, day-by-day.”
