Indian Valley Intermediate and Elementary School
Reynolds Energy Services was hired by the Mifflin County School District to provide a guaranteed energy savings performance contract at the Indian Valley Intermediate and Elementary School.
The district took a building that was originally constructed as a high school and re-purposed it as an intermediate and elementary school. The district had only $9.6 million to address the deficiencies of this 1950’s vintage school while the needs identified totaled slightly more than $14 million. Initially, the district’s architect simply reduced the scope of the work to fit the district’s budget. But the district was not satisfied with the final scope and began to search for alternative means to address this work.
By incorporating a performance contract into this project, the district was able to address more of the building’s needs than they would have by a traditional PlanCon renovation project approach.
This project received the U.S. Green Building Council of Central Pennsylvania’s 2015 Energy Sector Project of the Year award.
Mifflin County High School
Reynolds provided construction management for the new 251,088-square-foot, $56.6 million high school. The three-story structure was built into the hillside to reduce its apparent size and provide multiple on-grade entrances and is supported by an 800-foot-long soil nail wall. The new campus, with its hilltop high school, preserves usable land and incorporates existing playfields, parking, and access drives to link new and existing schools.
Mifflin County Junior High School
Reynolds provided construction management for the major renovation (129,462 square feet) and small addition (652 square feet) to the Mifflin County Junior High School. The renovations included converting school offices to computer labs, expanding the cafeteria, replacing windows, and upgrading building systems. The construction cost was $13 million.
