Capital Projects

The 2018 Capital Project Improvement Proposal was approved by voters on December 12, 2018.

(January 10, 2019) As 2019 begins, we want to give the Ichabod Crane community an update on our Capital Improvement Project, which voters approved on December 12, 2018.

We are now in the Schematic Design (SD) Phase, which lasts January-March 2019. During this phase, the architects (CSArch Architecture), construction management (Turner Construction) and the District conduct field visits to evaluate the buildings affected by project construction. These visits encompass the majority of investigative testing (ex. asbestos, geotechnical, etc.) and photographing & measuring worksites. We are holding ongoing bi-weekly Owner, Architect and Construction Management (OACM) Meetings to discuss project progress. A preliminary design concept is completed by the end of the SD Phase.

All Ichabod Crane staff and faculty directly affected by project construction will be actively involved throughout the entirety of the SD Phase, ensuring an open, democratic process.

CSArch will attend our February 5 Board of Education meeting where they will present a detailed timeline of next steps and answer any questions from attending community members.

Below you can view an up-to-date proposed project schedule. We will update this schedule as needed and make revised versions publicly available.
