Centreville Public Schools Board of Education members last week approved TowerPinkster as the architect of record for 2019-20, as the district looks to enter phase 3 of a bond project.
Superintendent Stephanie Lemmer and board president Jeff Troyer, however, will meet with TowerPinkster regarding concerns the district had in the first two phases of the project, such as drainage issues and parking lot design at the high school building.
Troyer asked board members to let him know of any additional matters he should address. Board member TJ Reed expressed concern about the company’s lack of response and responsibility for major mistakes.
A motion in July to approve TowerPinkster as architect of record died for lack of a support, and the district began to investigate the process of getting a new architect of record.
Troyer said that in December 2013, before the district did phase 1 of its bond project, it entered into a contract with TowerPinkster to conduct all three phases of the bond process.
Her research shows TowerPinkster is most qualified to do school architecture, the only firm regionally located that has experience with mechanical, electrical and other systems.
