The $4.9 million federally-funded renovation project at Bellefontaine High School has made significant progress over the last week.

Crews started a large cooling project at BHS in late May.

Each classroom in the academic wing has new univents to heat and cool that respective room.

ESSER II funds from the federal government will pay for the project, which will provide healthier air and increased energy efficiency.

The new chiller system will cool the original 35 classrooms at BHS. That portion of the high school was built in 1968.

The chiller is scheduled to arrive next week. It will be installed in a brick enclosure near the southwest corner of the high school.

Upon completion, each classroom will have individual temperature controls.

The new equipment will incorporate CO2 sensors, fresh air, and ionization for a healthier air environment for students and staff.

There’s another project happening at Bellefontaine High School.

Water testing by the Logan County Health District was performed last week.

Water is ready for consumption in the high school.

Several high school restrooms have been renovated and are ready for use.

Crews also replaced old carpeting in the BHS library and office area with rubber floors that are easier to clean and disinfect.

The rubber floors are similar to the floors at Bellefontaine Elementary School and Bellefontaine Middle School.

ESSER III funds from the federal government will pay for the project, which will lead to energy and maintenance savings for years to come.

The project will provide a cleaner indoor environment, a healthy learning environment, extend the life of the building, and avoid future capital costs.

The specific components of the project include: replace an outdated chiller, add cooling to the high school gym, replace aging piping, remodel restrooms, replace two sections of the roof (library and center classrooms), new doors and windows, flooring, and building controls.

Air handlers in the gym along with new windows in the academic wing will be installed next summer.

A flooring project at Bellefontaine Intermediate School started in May.

Crews removed carpet in 10 classrooms.

The carpet was replaced with a rubber floor, similar to the floors at Bellefontaine Elementary School and Bellefontaine Middle School.

The rubber floors are easier to clean and disinfect.

The flooring was recently replaced in the office/administration area at BIS.

ESSER III funds will also pay for the flooring project at BIS.
