The large renovation project at Bellefontaine High School continues this week.

Crews have made progress on new ceiling grid installation and additional piping/plumbing.

Crews started a large cooling project at BHS nearly a month ago.

Over the last two weeks, several new univents have been installed in classrooms on the first and second floor.

Waibel Energy Systems from Vandalia is performing the $1.2 million project over summer break.

Waibel has been the service provider for HVAC at BCS for several years.

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.

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.

Energy Optimizers, USA from Dayton is performing the $3.7 million project this summer and next summer.

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The specific components of the project include: replace an outdated chiller, add cooling to the high school gym, replace aging piping, remodel restrooms, replace two sections of the roof (library and center classrooms), new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