Building Assessment & Master Facility Plan
Centerville City Schools partnered with Levin Porter Architects to complete a district-wide building assessment and master facility plan in 2021. Watch the video above or read the following information for a brief summary of that process:
- November 2019: Centerville-Washington Township voters approved a 1-mill permanent improvement levy to provide the district with additional funds for building and infrastructure repairs, renovations and other long-term facility needs.
- November 2020: The Centerville Board of Education approved the district to move forward with a building assessment and master facility plan.
- December 2020: Over the next several months, representatives from Levin Porter evaluated 20 systems in every district facility, such as mechanical/HVAC, electrical, security, fire alarm and fire protection systems, roofing and more.
- October 2021: Mark Wiseman, the owner of Levin Porter Architects, gave a summary of the assessment during the Board of Education's public work session on Oct. 18, 2021. Check out this video sharing more information about the facility assessment.
- The completed building assessment provided the district with more than 2,700 pages of data, including each system’s age, general condition and life expectancy, as well as budget estimates and timelines for repair and replacement.
- Each building has its own assessment plan outlining future projects.
- In addition, the project introduced concepts for how the district could use existing facilities and acreage in the future.
- December 2022: A master facility planning committee, consisting of administrators, teachers, parents and community members, began meeting to discuss future facility needs and potential funding sources.
- Ongoing: The Business Operations department is developing a master facility plan based on the information from the building assessment and the master facility planning committee. In the meantime, maintenance and modernization projects continue to be completed in our facilities.
