The secure entrance vestibule is finished, with the exception of the ADA automatic door opener which technicians anticipate finishing next week. Drywall, tile, and plumbing fixtures will be installed in the central restrooms over the next week with scheduled turnover to the school the first week of October. Landscape crews will begin preparing areas of the site for sod installation which will occur in the coming weeks. The permanent playground shade structure should be delivered next week. Concrete for the foundation for the kindergarten addition has been poured with steel erection to begin shortly. The addition is scheduled to be finished by the end of December. Furniture has been installed in the new makerspace, and it is ready for student use. A glass wall with sliding doors out to the cafeteria will be installed in the space in December.

Markerboards will be installed in classrooms in the west wing, and the Nanawall (the movable wall between the Maker Space and the Colt Cafe) will be put in place. Construction fencing will be removed from around the site and students will have access to the grassy areas around the school following Thanksgiving Break. Window installation has started in the Kindergarten classroom addition. Exterior brickwork will start next week. The addition is still tracking to be finished in December.

Work is continuing on the interior restrooms with foundations in place and plumbing roughed-in. The intermediate playground and ball court have been the completed. All play areas are now open to students, although there is still some construction fencing around areas where the landscaping needs to be repaired. Staff and students are enjoying the new air conditioning(!), and the technicians continue to work to get the settings dialed in and functioning properly. The new makerspace next to the cafeteria is almost ready for students. Workers continue to address miscellaneous items in various areas around the school. We are deeply grateful for all the additional time and effort put in by Kohl teachers, staff, and volunteers to start the year.

The contractor is working to address maintenance issues with the temporary restrooms as they arise. Wiring installation at the front entrance is wrapping up, which will complete construction of the secure entry vestibule. A security guard is stationed at the front entrance to assist with identifying visitors until the Aiphone is fully functional. Furniture will be installed in the new makerspace in the coming days, and the room will soon be ready for students. Thank you for your support and ongoing patience and understanding.
June 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=17 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=17{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}June 2018Himmelman Construction has been busily mobilizing at Kohl Elementary to begin the summer renovation work. Workers have started the exterior work on the roof and playgrounds with the kindergarten addition starting this month. The interior work will start with restroom renovations and classroom remodeling to include upgraded HVAC system, windows, and casework. Renovations in the cafeteria include adding moveable glass walls and adjustable furniture that will allow the room to be used in a variety of ways. Just as a reminder, the school and school grounds will be closed for the summer. In addition, the office has been temporarily relocated to Broomfield Heights Middle school until August. The interior and exterior renovations will be substantially complete by the start of school with work on the Kindergarten addition continuing into the fall.
October 5, 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=23 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=23{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}October 5, 2018The temporary restrooms are gone! This week the project reached an eagerly anticipated milestone with the completion of the central restroom! Other accomplishments include a fully functional secure entrance vestibule, including repairs to the ADA compliant door, new basketball hoops and tetherball pole, and sod installation around the site. The preschool playground shade structure is on site and ready for installation, with the footings in the process of being poured. The final pieces of cafeteria furniture--fun new booths--were installed. The project team is making progress on the “punch list” of final items to be completed throughout the building. On the kindergarten addition, the foundation is finished, and we will soon see the structure come out of the ground. The framing process is beginning next week, weather permitting. The addition is still on target to be completed in December.
October 22, 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=24 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=24{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}October 22, 2018Construction crews continue to make steady progress toward completing final items in and around the school and on the kindergarten addition. We anticipate all items, exclusive of the kindergarten addition, will be finished by the end of Thanksgiving Break. This includes installation of new marker boards in classrooms. The final touches will be put on the Maker Space at the beginning of November with the installation of the Nanawall, the movable wall between that space and the cafe. Hardware and software have also been purchased for the digital kiosk in the vestibule at the front entrance. The storage container on the south side of the west wing was moved to the location of the other containers late last week. Window wall assemblies will be stored in these containers until they are installed next summer. The preschool shade structure has been installed and will be ready for student use on Monday (10/22). On the Kindergarten addition, the steel structure and roof are in place and the concrete slab will be poured soon. Crews are working on exterior stud framing. The addition is still on target to be completed in December.

The project team is still on track to have all items (except Kindergarten) finished by the end of Thanksgiving Break. The Nanawall (the movable wall between the Maker Space and the cafe) will be installed in the coming days. Project team members are working on creating the final list of items to be completed. Roof installation is underway on the Kindergarten addition. These new classrooms are still on target to be completed in December.,
January 28, 2019 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=28 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=28{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}January 28, 2019The Kindergarten addition will be complete and ready for occupancy this week. Fencing will remain in place until landscaping is planted in the spring. New marker boards were installed in various locations over Winter Break. The videography/Green Room is finished and ready for action. With these final items wrapped up, there will be very little construction activity for the rest of the school year. Himmelman Construction will continue to be onsite to address minor issues related to construction. This summer, crews will return to replace windows in A-wing. The project management team continues to explore options for making the playgrounds more ADA accessible. However, this work would not occur until later this calendar year.
August 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=19 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=19{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}August 2018The construction crews have made tremendous progress and accomplished a significant amount of work over the summer. The building will be ready for students on Aug. 15. Although construction will be substantially complete in most areas of the school, there will still be ongoing construction in the kindergarten addition (as planned) and the central, multi-user restroom. Temporary restroom facilities will be set up in a fenced location outside the school. Student trips to the facility will be supervised by a para-educator. The restroom renovations are expected to be complete by the end of September. The kindergarten addition is on the northeast corner of the building and will be inside a construction zone. New windows will be installed in the west wing over breaks during the school year. In addition to the work mentioned above, there will be construction workers addressing minor work items throughout the building. All work will occur outside of school hours. Areas under construction will be separated from the rest of the school with barriers and warning signs. We will do all we can to minimize the impact to the school from construction activity.
December 16, 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=27 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=27{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}December 16, 2018Construction on the Kindergarten addition is in the home stretch with a temporary certificate of occupancy anticipated before the end of the year. Exterior brick is finished and just the flashing remains to be completed on the roof. Inside, cabinets and shelving have been installed and carpet installation is underway. Painting will be completed over Winter Break. We anticipate the space will be ready for students in January. Elsewhere in the school, other miscellaneous tasks will be completed over the break, such as replacing a few marker boards, security door installation near the new restrooms, and installation of flooring in the Green Room, Kohl’s new videography lab. In the coming weeks, some landscape repair work will occur in the construction area. Some construction fence will remain in place until areas can be planted in the spring. The project management team is exploring expanding ADA equipment and improving access on a couple of the playgrounds. However, this work would not occur until 2019. Thank you for your support and ongoing patience!
July 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=18 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=18{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}July 2018Himmelman Construction continues to make progress on the renovation work at Kohl. Work outside the building during June included demolition and site work on the playgrounds, roofing, and excavation of foundational trenches for the new kindergarten addition. The interior work entailed removal of existing unit ventilators, demolition of areas to be renovated, installation of electrical rough-ins, and completion of the asbestos abatement work. During July, Himmelman will be working to complete the roof repair, installing new unit ventilators and windows, renovating the preschool area, reconfiguring the new main entry vestibule, converting the computer lab into a makerspace and installing new casework (cabinets) throughout the building. The renovation work is on schedule to be substantially complete for the start of school in August. Construction of the kindergarten addition will continue into the fall.
