The Plum School Board has chosen a name and awarded contracts for work on a new school in the district.
On Tuesday, the board appointed several firms to work on the school, which will be erected at the Adlai Stevenson Elementary site. Current plans call for the immediate closure of the current Holiday Park Elementary—Regency Park Elementary also could close in the future—and the redistricting of all students. The new school building will mirror the new George Pivik School.
The board decided the name of the new building would be Holiday Park Elementary School. At a facilities committee meeting earlier this month, board member Shane McMasters said it made the most sense because it would be the only school located in the Holiday Park neighborhood of the borough.
Pennsylvania Soil and Rock Inc. will act as the district's engineer for site design and permitting services at a cost of $245,358.
CDI Architects LLC doing business as L.R. Kimball Architects and Engineering also was appointed as the district's architect at a cost of 3 percent of the cost of work.
Russo Construction Services will act as the district's consultant and on-site representative for the project at a monthly cost of $5,833 during preconstruction and post substantial completion phases; and $9,800 during construction.
The firms also worked on the new George Pivik Elementary School, which opened this school year.
