Fairfield County School Board OK’s Architect

Following their executive session Dec. 11, the Fairfield County School Board voted 5-1 to accept a contract with MBAJ Architecture and Brownstone Design to move forward with a pre-design for the proposed new Career and Technology Center. Annie McDaniel voted against the $10,500 contract. Board member Andrea Harrison was absent from the meeting.

Although the Board’s agenda included a discussion of a contractual matter under executive session, no discussion or vote on the contract was listed on the public portion of the agenda.

According to the company’s proposal, Brownstone/MBAJ will meet with the District to determine space requirements and equipment needs for the proposed structure, as well as develop a preliminary budget for the design and construction of the building. Using available aerial photographs and site survey information, the firm will prepare a conceptual sketch of where the Career Center might be located on available property between or near Fairfield Middle School and Fairfield Central High School.

Services or costs not included in the Brownstone/MBAJ scope of work include a topographic survey of the site and soil and construction testing. Those costs will be passed along to the District.

Brownstone/MBAJ will present their pre-design to the Board during their Jan. 12 retreat.
