Health/Life/Safety Projects Summer 2015
Over the 2015 summer, restrooms in the Kempton East building and in the Piper City building were renovated to meet the ADA requirements for handicapped restrooms. Both Boys and Girls restrooms in the Kempton East building were completely remodeled and new fixtures, partitions and wall and floor coverings installed. Not only do these restrooms meet the ADA requirements, the project provided a much needed update to the facilities. In addition to the restroom work, a ramp was installed in the back hallway connecting different parts of the building making the transition between sections handicapped accessible also.
The locker room restrooms in the west portion of the Piper City building were remodeled to provide handicapped restrooms. These restrooms were largely unused and allowed for a minimum of demolition that needed to be done to add the ADA restrooms. The new handicapped restrooms are accessible through the same entrance that is used to enter the existing restrooms on the west end of the building and also provide a baby changing area and can be used by parents with young children.
In addition to the restroom work, a new door was added to the east side of the Piper City gymnasium to allow spectators to enter and leave the game without having to walk across the end of the basketball/volleyball courts.
A new hallway ceiling was installed in the hallway outside the high school gymnasium. This new ceiling is a welcome improvement to the hallway and allowed some of the conduit that was installed to carry internet/computer cables to be concelaed above the ceiling greatly improving the appearance of the hallway.
