Bond Proposal May 12, 2012
I.E.Clark Fine Arts Center – Problem – Consistent separation of walls and foundation over the years. Summary – The Fine Arts Center has been experiencing structural and cosmetic distress associated with settlement and/or differential movement in the pier and beam foundation for many years or decades. The cause of this distress is inadequate support provided by the concrete pier and beam foundation. “Moody Engineering Inc. July 26 th, 2010/Forensic Engineering Investigation of Damage to the Fine Arts Center at SISD”
Redirecting Surface Water runoff (District Fixed) Extend Roof Drain Gutters (District Fixed) Replace cast iron drain system within foundation crawl space
Four professional firms were contacted for opinions--all recommended repair vs. replacement due to the cost of repairing the older building. All issues with the theatre/auditorium were structural--not cosmetic.
In August, the District heard the reports and, rather than invest major amounts of money into the facility again, closed it down. The amount necessary to repair the Arts Center to meet the standard of expectation is reflected in the Bond Proposal in the construction of a new theatre/auditorium.
The district’s 3/5/10 Committee, together with many local volunteers, formed a Facilities Committee and began looking at current and future needs. A Facilities Tour was taken by the Committee. The Board of Trustees selected the following firms to help with plans, construction costs and bonding: Jim Singleton/Singleton Architects Von Gallagher/Gallagher Construction Christian Merritt/Government Capitol (No Expense has been or will be incurred unless a Bond Issue is passed.)
