School Upgrades for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

Rochester Public Schools ISD #535 serves approximately 16,400 students in 16 elementary schools, four middle schools, and three comprehensive high schools. In April 2009, the first Best Value tests were conducted on John Adams Middle School for general renovation and air quality control upgrade project.

The District was very satisfied with the performance, and continued with 17 additional projects utilizing the Best Value delivery system. All of the projects were completed during the schools’ very limited summer construction timeframe (approximately three months). The client stated, “Using best value allowed us to see solutions from the contractors before the projects begin, which saves time in our tight schedule.”
