Air Conditioning Progress
On Wednesday, October 30, 2019, the Floyd County School Board and the Floyd County Board of Supervisors met to discuss the proposed air conditioning project for Floyd County Public Schools. Through their collaborative efforts and forward-thinking, the Floyd County Board of Supervisors approved the installation of air conditioning in all schools.
Based on budget parameters set by the Board of Supervisors, the original proposal was redesigned, with no compromise on the quality of equipment to be installed. The current project will include air conditioning in all classrooms and instructional spaces. The system is easily expandable to include the additional spaces (hallways, lobbies, bathrooms, storage rooms, and FCHS Old Gym) at a later date.
On December 20, 2019 project managers from Nor-Well Corporation (installers of the AC), Thompson & Litton, Mr. Cox, FCPS Maintenance Supervisor, and Dr. Wheeler met to review the organization and scheduling for the installation of the units. A schedule will be developed and more information will follow with plans to begin the actual installation in schools possibly this summer.
The progress on the AC install is going as scheduled. There was a delay on the delivery of the inside units but they will be delivered soon. The outside units have been set and the interior electrical work is coming to a completion and will be ready when the inside units arrive. The projected completion date is in late October.
