Moving a long term facilities plan from vision to reality

December 21, 2018

In June of 2017, Roseville School Board approved the first year of a 10-year, $12,000,000 annual investment to fund Long-Term Facilities Maintenance(LTFM).   LTFM funds can address issues with heating, dehumidification, ventilation, maintenance, roofs, paving, walls, floors, and windows.  Shortly after, Roseville School District conducted interviews for Consultants to support the upcoming LTFM projects.  KFI was awarded the contract for the District’s MEP Consultants.

At the same time the LTFM projects were being kicked off, Roseville Area Schools long term facility vision was also funded when the community voted to pass the referendum.  The referendum approved, as stated in the ballot, “building bonds in an amount not to exceed $144,000,000 to provide funds for the repair, upgrade, and construction of improvements and additions to various school sites and facilities districtwide, including without limitation improving safety and security, addressing aging buildings, adding space to accommodate increasing student enrollment, updating learning spaces, and enhancing community resources.”

KFI Engineers was brought onboard as Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) Consultants and Commission Agents for the District, to bring all these projects to life.
