Cumberland Valley School District - New Elementary and Middle School
Mechanicsburg, PA – Massaro CMS was hired to provide agency construction management services for the Cumberland Valley School District’s two new schools on an 80 acre shared site. The work will include a substantial amount of grading on existing farmland. New utility services to the buildings will include a large amount of storm and sanitary work that will have offsite tie-ins.
A major portion of the work involves the relocation of the existing Bali Hai Road that bisects the property. This relocation will involve major removal and installation of an electrical service duct bank as well as the re-purposing of an existing 24 inch mater main that services adjacent residential housing plans. The increased traffic loads generated from the new schools will require the improvements to three major intersections through Penn Dot highway occupancy permits. Both school sites will include a substantial amount of new concrete curbs, sidewalks and walkway plaza’s serving as new entries.
Each school consists of foundations, load bearing block walls, steels joists and deck, roofing and exterior masonry facades. The schools will feature new interior finishes for painting, flooring and full service cafeterias. The Middle School will feature two new PIAA tournament class basketball courts in their gymnasiums. The HVAC systems will be four pipe systems with roof mounted units furnishing tempered air flows. New electrical systems will be fed from new service entries from the Bali Hai road duct banks. Each school will have landscaped courtyards between the educational unit wings that will also serve as outdoor classroom areas for the students.
