Design renderings for the Miller-Driscoll renovation project were presented to the Board of Education during its May 28 meeting.
“The scope reflected in the drawings is virtually identical to the scope of the construction [in] the conceptual drawings, ” Miller-Driscoll Building Committee co-Chair Karen Birck told the board.
After the project’s conceptual plans were approved by the education board and signed off by the state, said senior architect Randall Luther, of Tai Soo Kim, they underwent a cursory review for “a lot of the administrative paperwork issues and [to] check for things relevant to temporary classrooms.”
“From there, we took them for what’s called a local review, where they were reviewed by building, fire and health for accessibility components to ensure that the design met all the requirements,” he said.
“Once that was all checked off, the sign-off for that went back to the state and they signed off in it.”
The committee will come back to the board with completed construction documents, said Luther, and “at that time, we will need the board’s approval.”
