Boyd Jones has partnered with the DC West Community School District since April of 2015 working on a variety of projects for the school district.
The team was initially brought on to complete a large scope of work in a thirteen-week period. Renovations and additions were completed to solve accessibility, life-safety, and indoor air quality issues. Due to widespread mold issues in the middle school and preschool, the district decided to demolish a section of their building in Waterloo. A new water service and boiler system were added to replace services that were contained in the demolished portion of the building. As replacement for these spaces, Boyd Jones procured two, six-unit portable classroom buildings. One building is now located at the Waterloo campus and the other is in Valley. Also included in this project was a fire sprinkler system throughout the Valley campus. Boyd Jones added two new restrooms and renovated the remaining four restrooms to solve accessibility issues. Finally, a new preschool playground was added to accommodate the relocation to the Valley campus.
In October of 2016, the district needed to accommodate students from the Waterloo campus. Boyd Jones developed a solution to create permanent value rather than investing in portable classrooms. A planned future addition for the school was used to create a ten-classroom middle school on the Valley campus for the 2017 school year. Once the project was approved, it was discovered the kitchen did not have the capacity to feed additional students and a remodel was added to the project. As the projects neared completion, remaining budget in the GMP was identified and used to build a kiln room addition.
