Heating units to be replaced at FDSH

Fort Dodge Senior High will see some upgrades to its heating and ventilation systems this summer.

The Fort Dodge Community School District board approved plans for HVAC projects at its meeting Monday night.

“We have a push to get some projects on the docket for summer,” Travis Filloon, FDCSD director of buildings and grounds, said. “There’s some needs and the high school with the rooftop heating units. Those almost completely failed last winter, so we felt this was a necessity.”

He said two units are located in the southeast corner of the building.

“That part of the building is controlled by two rooftop units,” Filloon said. “This project will bring it up to current standards. We will have air conditioning as well as heating capabilities and the individual controls. This will involve duct work in the classrooms and hallways. New ceilings will be put in at the same time.”

Removal of existing ceiling systems, new general classroom HVAC roof top units, new wood shop HVAC roof top unit, ductwork distribution, hot water distribution, HVAC, digital control system, new ceiling grid system, fire suppression system, new light fixtures, technology rewiring, and power requirements, are included in the project.

The total project cost is estimated at $932,692.95.
