Ridgewood District-Wide Facility Assessment & Phased Capital Improvement Program

Ridgewood Public Schools

Ridgewood, NJ


EI Associates was retained by the Ridgewood School District to execute a district wide facility assessment of all of their school and administrative facilities.  The assessment will serve as part of an update to the Long Range Facility Plan (LRFP), and assist the District in identifying, prioritizing, planning, budgeting, and executing future capital improvement projects.  This assessment addresses the seven elementary schools, two middle schools, the Ridgewood High School, and the Education Center.

Each of the school assessments address physical condition and age of the building and or building systems, code compliance issues, handicapped accessibility, and life safety concerns.  Deficiencies are identified for each area when applicable.  Recommendations for action are outlined and where the scope is clearly defined, cost estimates addressing the identified need are provided.

The assessment findings are prioritized and summarized in a deficiency matrix for execution over a multi-year period, coinciding with the District’s capital expenditure plan.
