  10. Facility Overview Maintenance History

  11. Facility Assessment School Site Issues

  12. Facility Assessment Pedestrian Access- Off-site The school is surrounded by paved walking paths Pedestrians approaching from the north and east are difficult to monitor Pedestrians costs vehicular traffic at 3 out of 4 gates to the site Only pedestrians who approached the intersection at Alarid and Paseo De Peralta are assisted by the crossing guard School zones are clearly marked at Alarid and Paseo De Peralta, but do not address the problem of congestion at the intersection

  13. Facility Assessment Pedestrian Access- On-site Most pedestrian walkways on the school ground are paved The path along the south elevation is unpaved, muddy, and not well lighted Pedestrian walkways along the north side of the building are icy Classrooms exit to this area during emergency evacuation Ice buildup poses slipping hazards, including icy build up of the only accessible egress from the northwest part of the building

  14. Facility Assessment Vehicular Access Faculty, visitor, and pick-up/drop-off access is concentrated at the intersection of Alarid Street and Paseo De Peralta The concentration of vehicles trying to enter one gate, especially in the afternoon, creates unsafe congestion Delivery trucks, trash pickup, and additional faculty access occurs at the southeast corner of the site Emergency vehicle access occurs at the northwest corner of the site Parking for special events occurs at residential streets The site configuration does not address the need for safe and controlled access Vehicular and pedestrian traffic requires independent study Resolution of circulation issues will involve the city of Santa Fe

  15. Facility Assessment Parking Given the number of faculty and staff, there is enough parking At 1.5 parking spaces per FTE Alvord needs 29 spaces. There are 35 spaces on site Per the NM Building Code, 2 need to be accessible with 1 van space During special events parking is limited, requiring visitors to park along residential streets. A bicycle rack is located near the main entry

  16. Facility Assessment Portable Buildings, Access and Condition The school has never used portables There is no place to locate a portable on site If a portable was ever brought to the site, access points include the gate at the southeast corner off Paseo De Peralta and the northwest gate off Alarid Street

  17. Facility Assessment Landscaping and Irrigation Landscaping and plant materials are sparse When trees are full of foliage, visibility of the playground area is partially screened Destructive root system at trees to the north contributes to paving damage Irrigation systems are used at south plantings, the main entrance, and the playground area Drip irrigation at the south plantings are damaged by foot traffic A pit to access irrigation valves is not locked, creating a hazard Problems maintaining irrigation systems stem from a lack of information and location of shut-off valves and drains

  18. Facility Assessment Drainage Most of the site drains well Water ponding problems North access roadway South end of the historic building Ponding areas would benefit from regarding and surface improvements to divert storm water runoff to drainage inlets

  19. Facility Assessment Hardscape, Student Seating, Exterior Stairs, Plazas, Retaining Walls There is no seating for students at the pick-up/drop-off area or near the main entrance The main playground is not accessible The kindergarten playground ramp is too steep for handicap access has inadequate landings and needs handrails Hardscape is limited to paving to accommodate pedestrians and vehicles A section of concrete paving located at the south side of the gym needs minor repair for tripping hazards and ice build up

  20. Facility Assessment Site Recreational Amenities There are no play fields at Alvord The court area includes markings and 4 basketball goals Play equipment is in good condition but lacks a consistent amount of fall protection within fall zones Balance equipment is within the fall zone of adjacent play equipment and should be relocated A sandbox is located at the edge of a retaining wall where a child can fall a few feet down

  21. Facility Assessment Site Safety and Security, Hazards, Fencing, Signage Site access Vehicular congestion Commingled vehicular and pedestrian traffic Students crossing in front of vehicles at the pick-up/drop-off area Congestion formed by vehicles merging to access the site at the intersection of Alarid and Paseo De Peralta Unsupervised vehicle and pedestrian access from the northwest and southeast corners of the site

  22. Facility Assessment Site Safety and Security, Hazards, Fencing, Signage Continued Ice buildup Unprotected access to utility control panels and valves Pit where water valves are located Lack of visual screening at the fence surrounding the playground area Lack of exterior building signs Spaces that need to be added to the master key system

  23. Facility Assessment Site Safety and Security, Security Lighting, Sight Lines, Cameras Additional site lighting is needed Along the south side of the historic building Along the north end of the building Areas with limited sight lines North and east part of the site Secondary corridors The school does not have a surveillance camera

  24. Facility Assessment Site Utilities, Water, Sewer, Fire Hydrants, Garbage Collection Alvord has access to city utilities General Services recommend evaluation of water mains due to age Power capacity issues require evaluation Administration area 1972 classroom addition Fire hydrants are located in close proximity to the school Dumpsters are not surrounded by a screen wall Most site utilities are unprotected

  25. Facility Assessment Site Utilities, Electrical, Gas, Phone and Data Gas meters are protected with a locked gate, but the fence is too short Valves at the kitchen are not protected Electrical utilities are not adequately protected

  26. School Plant

  27. Facility Assessment Structure: Foundations, Floors Foundations appear to be structurally sound Floor issues include Replacement of floor covering that has met its useful life Evaluation of the floor crawlspace access area in room 140 for mold growth and occasional foul odors

  28. Facility Assessment Structure: Exterior Envelop, Walls, Sound TransmissionExterior Envelope Issues Overall the exterior walls are in good condition. Issues Include: Stucco planter wall with peeling paint Splash blocks that are broken or out of position Moisture wicking behind stucco at grade Historic windows that have been removed and infilled Damage at conductor heads and missing/damaged leaf screens

  29. Facility Assessment Structure: Exterior Envelop, Walls, Sound Transmission ContinuedExterior Envelope Issues Historic brick coping and sills that need to be repointed Abandoned wires and piping Wall surfaces that are mottled, cracked, and damaged from graffiti Faded and chalking paint at exterior metals, particularly doors Wall murals that need to be restored Debris collecting where roof drains daylight Evaluation of blackish areas which may be mold growth

  30. Facility Assessment Structure: Exterior Envelop, Walls, Sound Transmission ContinuedInteriors Issues Damaged acoustic panels and metal trim around in the gym Spaces in need of paint Gym Kitchen Corridors at historic wing Worn VCT in the kitchen area Worn carpet at ~ 50% of the classrooms in the historic wing No sound transmission issues were observed or reported

  31. Facility Assessment Structure: Roofs, Ceilings Roof systems include a combination of single-ply TPO, built-up, modified bitumen, and hot applied rolled asphalt roofing with a granular surface A roofing evaluation conducted by the Armstrong Group in 2006 recommends Replacement of TPO sections in 7 to 11 years Replacement of built-up, modified bitumen, and surface rolled roofing over the next 10 years Issues observed include Scuppers located to high to effectively drain surface runoff Broken roof drain guard Evidence of ponding Build-up of debris at corners and scupper wells Unsupported conduit Ice build-up Damaged conductor heads

  32. Facility Assessment Structure: Roofs, Ceilings Continued Acoustic drop-in ceiling tile with stains from water damage in the following areas Kitchen Nurse area Classroom 135 Restrooms 115, 116, 151 Corridor 139

  33. Facility Assessment Accessibility/Safety: Doors, Corridors, Egress, Stairs, Glass Kindergarten cubbies that provide areas where a child can crawl in and hide Electrical conduit that can be easily hit near gas lines in the kitchen Possible mold growth at room 140 and at exterior masonry Access to the basement mechanical room blocked by stored items Table blocking access to the handicapped ramp as the northwest corner of the building

  34. Facility Assessment Mechanical Systems Boilers are in good condition The hot water distribution system has a single pump with no redundancy Fan coil units are in poor condition Restrooms and janitor closets have no exhaust Lack of zoning contributing to temperature control problems Evaporative cooling units that require a high degree of maintenance and water Sidewall exhaust fans in marginal condition Two different types of heating and cooling systems are difficult to maintain in a single facility 34

  35. Facility Assessment Electrical Systems Fire Alarm System Proprietary fire alarm system is no longer supported locally, and costly to maintain Combination light/alarm units have been installed as directed by the Fire Marshal Security Alarm System Exit doors from the classrooms at the north side of the east wing are not alarmed Students can exit north doors and leave the grounds through the northwest gate which is not easily monitored from the facility 35

  36. Facility Assessment Electrical Systems Continued Lighting Systems Lighting systems should be upgraded with high-efficient fixtures and individual occupancy sensors should be installed Several light fixtures in building support spaces do not have covers or wire guards Power System Repair main service equipment to comply with the NEC Power consumption should be recorded. Loab imbalances should be redistributed Ground system should be tested and harmonics should be corrected 36

  37. Facility Assessment Plumbing General restroom issues include Dripping faucets Suspended ceiling tiles out of position or damaged Missing dispensers Line-of-sight problems When corridor doors held open Limited to toilet partitions Broken exhaust fans Uneven lighting Missing scald protection

  38. Facility Assessment Technology Both data/communications rooms in the facility are used for storage Stored items are located among draped wires. Wire management is needed Media classrooms lack several features such as Fixed and dedicated storage Bookcases Ceiling-mounted projection systems Computer-driven equipment such as overhead projection capability and smart boards All classrooms have 2-4 computer clusters. Six are required Each classroom needs additional power and data connection to support additional computers

  39. Facility Assessment Maintenance Janitorial storage spaces should be used only for cleaning supplies and equipment. General storage items should be removed A fire-rated storage cabinet is needed for flammables Tools and supplies for landscape maintenance was not observed All storage rooms and janitor closets need wire guards at light fixtures Most general storage rooms are filled with unorganized items. Smaller items should be stored on shelves

  40. Environment for Education

  41. Facility Assessment Site and Building Organization The school is within the attendance area in a residential neighborhood All students who walk live within a1-mile radius Incompatible land use includes Railroad tracks Power lines Business development very close to the playground

  42. Facility Assessment Ability to Support After School and Community Use After school programs are located in the gym and classroom 149 Children from other schools attend after school programs at Alvord Classroom 118 is used for home-schooled students on a part-time basis The gym is used for community basketball programs

  43. Facility Assessment Classrooms: Size Kindergarten (1000 s.f. w/ aide for 20 students and 750 w/o aide for 15 students; 40 s.f. dedicated storage) The classroom used for kindergarten complies 1st – 3rd Grade (704 s.f. for 22 students with 44 s.f. dedicated storage) The classrooms used for 1st – 3rd grade are too small for the maximum allowable PTR 4th – 5th Grade (768 s.f. for 24 students with 48 s.f. dedicated storage) Classrooms used for 4th – 5th grade are too small for the maximum allowable PTR All standard classrooms have enough dedicated storage

  44. Facility Assessment Classrooms: Condition Classrooms generally have one power receptacle on two walls and two receptacles on one wall Clustered student computers are typically powered with duplex receptacles None of the classrooms have power or data at the ceiling to support ceiling-mounted computer-driven projection systems or wall-mounted TV/DVD equipment Blowers at radiators are noisy Finishes are generally acceptable Carpet replacement in 3 to 5 years Doors need kick plates, wall bumpers, and door stops

  45. Facility Assessment Classrooms: Condition Continued Classroom 140 There is a fish-smelling odor particularly when the air-conditioner is turned on Mold growth was discovered on filters in the general area Evaluation observations include Blackish areas were observed in the small storage closet Musty odor Water damage at the ceiling and walls

  46. Facility Assessment Classrooms: Teaching Aids Classrooms typically need Additional storage furniture Sinks with counters and cabinets Additional power and data TVs and DVDs Clocks Telephones

  47. Facility Assessment Special Education: Classroom Size, Characteristics Space used for speech and pull-out are less than 450 sq. ft., limiting class sizes Some spaces do not have windows Items needed in the classroom are the same of those listed for general classrooms The restroom for the self-contained classroom does not have a shower or tub, nor is there one available at the school The kitchenette in the self contained area needs a counter with sink and lockable upper and base cabinets. They could also use some additional desks with cubbies and more coat hooks The OT/PT room needs a ceiling hook Type I and special education administrative tasks occur in room 110 There is not a dedicated space for testing

  48. Facility Assessment Fine Arts: Classroom Size, Characteristics - Music The music room is too small. The minimum required size is 650 sf The space does not have enough dedicated storage The space does not have enough power receptacles The school has a band program but does not have a dedicated band room. Band is held in the OT/PT area. There is no storage for equipment, music, or stands. The shared OT/PT space does not have proper acoustic treatment

  49. Facility Assessment Fine Arts: Classroom Size, Characteristics – Visual Arts Alvord has one of the best and well-equipped art classrooms in the District The space is adequate in size and has enough storage Issues include Lack of full-spectrum lamps Ceiling projection system Lack of visible thermometer

  50. Facility Assessment Library: Size and Characteristics The library area totals 1697 square feet (1000 s.f. is required for the student population) The library is well equipped and functional Issues include Lack of staff development area Lack of individual study areas Limited space for book processing Lack of media projection capabilities a very small story area Library expansion is not feasible The circulation desk has one computer and one checkout station A room adjacent to the library is used for storage and provides office space for the coach. Ideally this room could provide additional storage, and a staff development area.
