Kenwood K-8 Kicks off GOB Project

Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho, School Board member Lubby Navarro, School Principal

Rodolfo Rodriguez, and District and school administrators joined students of Kenwood K-8 Center this

morning to break ground on Kenwood’s General Obligation Bond (GOB) construction project. 

Slated to be completed February 2019, the total GOB investment of $4.3 million will provide for a number of improvements, including new classroom technology upgrades, new impact windows and window treatments, HVAC upgrades, restroom renovations, complete renovations to 10 classrooms in building 4, a new shade structure as well as painting of the playground’s fence enclosure, a covered walkway at the cafeteria building, roofing in media center and new carpet flooring, security light upgrades, selective door and hardware replacement and exterior painting.

The School Board commissioned Nyarko Architectural Group and VPI as the architect and construction manager, respectively. The total sub-consultant Small Business Enterprise (SBE) participation for construction is expected to be 32.28 percent.
