Lu Engineers has been designated by Rochester School Modernization Program (RSMP) to provide environmental project and indoor air quality monitoring and sampling services for three Rochester City schools that are slated for renovation, or reconstruction this spring and summer. Lu Engineers, along with their partners, will determine if hazardous materials are present within the buildings and if so, will design a safe plan to have them removed. Lu will also provide air and water quality sampling services.
The schools that Lu will be providing services for are Clara Barton School 2, George Mather-Forbes School 4 and Flower City School 30/54. The renovation work is part of the RSMP’s $435 million initiative to transform the existing City School buildings into high performance facilities that provide an ideal learning environment for Rochester students. Steve Campbell, Lu Engineers’ Environmental Division Director stated, “We are excited to be a part of this project. Providing area students with a modern, innovative learning environment is work we are proud to be a part of. Ensuring a hazardous free environment for students, educators and administrators and those that will complete the building improvements is a responsibility we take very seriously. ”
Pre-construction work will begin in the spring of this year, with construction commencing in the summer of 2018. Businesses assisting Lu Engineers on this project include Sienna Environmental Technologies, Paradigm Environmental Services, CanAm Environmental Health and Safety and Lozier Laboratories.
