SCA Update and Responses to PS29′s Questions – 05.01.2012

Posted by: admin on: May 1, 2012

At 12.49pm we received an email (below) from Yvette Knight at the SCA outlining some decisions they have made regarding communication between us moving forward, documents we requested, and responses to the questions we submitted last Thursday.


Dear PS 29 Health & Safety Committee:

The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) looks forward to a productive meeting at 9:00 AM on Thursday, May 3rd.

SCA representatives will be available to answer parents’ questions. We’ve blocked out an hour and one-half for this meeting in order to have enough time to respond to any additional questions that parents may have.

As noted in last nights email response, Ben Barresi is the SCA Project Officer for the PS 29 project. He will manage the project and he will be at PS 29 every night from 3:30 PM to 11 PM.

On Mr. Barresi’s  Tuesday and Saturday night’s off, another project officer will be assigned to the project. Mr. Barresi’s main priority will be ensuring that the SCA’s project moves along safely and efficiently. In order to do that, Mr. Barresi will not be the main contact person for the SCA.

As the parents’ contact person for the PS 29 project, I will respond to parents’ questions in a timely manner.

We agree with the committee that having one SCA contact person to direct parents’ question to make sense and, we also feel that it would makes sense for the parents to have one or two representatives to whom the SCA can respond in order to reduce duplication and ensure all parents questions are responded to in a timely manner.

Below please find responses to parents’ prior e-mailed questions.

Attached are the following:

• SCA responses to the questions submitted on 4/25 and on 4/27.
• Contract documents:
•  Adams European – too large for email.  Will be provided at the meeting on Thursday, May 3rd.
• Taylor Environmental – too large for email.  Will be provided at the meeting on Thursday, May 3rd.
• Clean up document
• Neighbor notification letter
• UFT protocol checklist
• Proposed schedule

Let me know of any questions or concerns.
