    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    In March 2000, Alberta Infrastructure engaged R.L.Wilkin Architects Ltd. to evaluate the conditions of a number of schools within Edmonton Public School District No.7. The evaluation process and the forms provided were developed by Alberta Infrastructure and reviewed with the consultant prior to visiting this facility on 10 March 2000.

    Little information was available from Edmonton Public Schools in terms of recent studies, roof inspections, etc., thus evaluations have been based primarily on the site visit and discussions with staff.

    Malmo Elementary School was constructed in 1963 and had a major expansion built in 1969. The school was built on unique soils

    repairs. The interior is very well maintained although showing its age in terms of floor finishes and wall finishes. The primary concern and/or deficiencies requiring attention, are the mechanical and electrical systems which both need significant upgrading to up-grade them to current standards.

    Malmo School is primarily non-combustible concrete block wall construction with a pre-cast concrete roof structure, built-up membrane roofing and brick wall cladding. As noted above, there is concern regarding the structural movement/shifting that occurs regularly, and its effect on other building components.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY cont'd Summary of Observations and Recommendations

    As noted previously, the major items requiring attention are the mechanical systems and the electrical systems. A review of the soils conditions, the structural condition of the building, and how these two are related is also a high priority item.

    Evaluation Ratings 3 or Less

    The following estimates apply to items that were rated 1, 2, or 3 as described in the evaluation guidelines:

    1. Site related work $ 68 000. 2. Building Exterior 48 000. 3. Building Interior 95 660. *costs may increase depending on outcome of items noted for further investigation 4. Mechanical items 559 000. 5. Electrical items 312 000. Total Estimated Costs $ 1 082 660.*

    7. Space Adequacy Assessment Based upon equivalent areas for a non-core school with a capacity of 500 elementary students (using guidelines provided by Alberta provided by Alberta Infrastructure) this school is slightly over (41.7 m2) the suggested area. Further Investigation It is recommended that further investigation be done in the following areas: 1. A roof investigation to determine extent of roof repairs/replacement required. 2. A thorough energy efficiency study should be completed prior to the necessary electrical upgrading. 3. A hazardous materials evaluation is required prior to any repairs/upgrading. There is a concern re lead based paints. 4. A thorough soils test and structural review should be completed to determine cause and possible solutions to the problems evident.

    School Data/Plan Information

    to outside agencies. These agencies have renovated areas within the leased spaces and this information should be noted.

    2 Two areas of significant ponding and/or water collecting along school perimeter. Both areas to be regraded away from building and/or a catch basin/drainage system installed. (Cost for regrading only.) $10 000.

    1.1.7 Evidence of sub-soil problems.

    FI Discussions with staff indicate that school (and surrounding housing) has been built on a unique clay that has high tendancy for swelling/shrinkage cycles throughout the year. School has many structural problems that seem to be a result of this. (See also 2.1)

    1.1.8 Safety and security concerns due to site conditions. 4 None apparent or noted in discussions with staff.
