Contract Awarded for Phase One of New Fencing at Burlingame Intermediate School

At its July 23, 2015 Special Meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Board Awarded a Contract for Phase One of New Fencing at Burlingame Intermediate School.

BSD Staff has explored our campus with the DTA Architects, Burlingame Police Department, and the San Mateo County Schools Insurance Group to assess school security.  Both entities support the efforts BSD has taken, including staff wearing ID badges, locked exterior doors, and an enforced visitor sign-in process.  Both recommend additional perimeter fencing, signage, and gates with the goal to direct visitors to one entrance and restrict access to other entrances during the school day.  Staff and DTA Architects met with school PTA’s, a site design committee made up of staff and parents, and held one (1) public input meeting. 

At the March 11, 2014 Regular Board Meeting, the board awarded a contract for this scope at all K-5 campuses.  Today we are presenting the lowest qualified bid for awarding this scope at BIS.

The first phase of the fences and gates at BIS are for the back of campus security and control.  The majority of added gates would be locked at all times and staff would have keys to access school from parking lots.  Two (2) gates that would currently give access to bike parking and Franklin Elementary School would remain unlocked before and after school.  Two 10 foot rolling gates will give access to Osberg Field and be open after school and weekends.  Phase two of the fences and gates would address the entrances off of Quesada.   The final plan is that only one entrance would remain unlocked for visitors during the school day, while still maintaining all required exiting from the interior.   

An Invitation to Bidders was published in the San Mateo Daily Journal, on the weeks of June 28th, and July 6th.  Four (4) contractors attended the July 9, 2015 mandatory pre-bid conference. Upon staff recommendation the Board awarded the contract to the lowest qualified bidder, Dryco Construction.
