Gym floor project at South Whidbey Elementary School South Campus gets new cost

A previous bid for new gym flooring at South Whidbey Elementary School South Campus was approximately $12,000 lower than the actual cost.

The South Whidbey School Board corrected the error made by Snohomish-based contractor Hart’s Athletic Floors and Construction at its regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 13, bringing the total cost of the project to $85,637.

The campus’s gym floor is currently carpeted, having previously been used as a multipurpose facility serving physical education classes, food service and other activities for K-2 students.

But the carpeting has become detached from the sub-flooring in a number of areas and have caused “bubbles” on the surface, according to school documents. The floor is inadequate for current usage by fifth and sixth grade students in physical education classes.

Hart’s Athletic Floors and Construction will replace the floor with padded vinyl sports flooring. In addition to the flooring material, the construction company will install floor sleeves for volleyball nets and lines for basketball, pickle ball, volleyball and a 20-foot-radius circle.

The work will be done during winter break and comes with a 10-year warranty.
