will heat and cool the
new addition.

This May look for construction work to start on exterior windows and curtain wall. Interior work will focus on finishes
including drywall, painting, door frames and doors, ceiling grid, wall insulation, casework, and trim-out of mechanical and
electrical systems.

The Contractor has set up temporary construction trailers at the Summit K-12 / Jane Addams parking lot across the street,
to allow demolition of Portable #9 in early May and work to start in the existing east driveway on the geothermal well pip-
ing, new storm detention system, and new electrical service.

Project 2: The Renovation
The project team has completed 90% of the Project 2 design, which is the renovation of the main building including the
offices, academic core, cafeteria and commons, and athletic facilities. We have advertised some of the work for public bid-
ding, and are currently working with the building department to obtain three different building permits to start work this
summer. Demolition is planned to start on July 6, and new temporary classroom portables will start to arrive the week
prior and be set up in three different parking lots.

Visit the BEX website, bex.seattleschools.org, to see a live webcam of the construction site, construction photos, news,
updates and more to keep you up-to-date on the construction progress.

Please contact the Senior Project Manager, Ian Kell, at (206) 443-9939 or ikell@heery.com if you have any questions or
concerns regarding the construction project.
