Renovations start at BCS

With students and faculty on summer vacation, Butler Catholic School is undergoing tremendous renovations the next few months.
Focusing on three major areas to start, the renovations target key HVAC, electrical, and fire alarm system needs.
“Progress has been made on the new duct working coming into the school,” said Principal Sister John Ann Mulhern. “And also rewiring throughout.”
Last summer, BCS invested in technology and internet connection upgrades to improve school operations. This included running new ethernet cabling to most of the building, establishing 38 new wireless access points and four new switches, installing a new firewall, and updating school computers.
This summer’s projects will continue our ever-evolving approach to academics. These changes won’t just improve school safety. They’ll also improve our ability to provide staff and families with the best academic experiences possible by minimizing day-to-day disruptions and maximizing classroom efficiency.
Since the last day of school earlier this month, workers have been in the building from early morning through the afternoon targeting different project sites around the school.
“The group has been very cooperative and very considerate,” Sister John Ann explained.
Through collaboration, crews have been able to work simultaneously in order to ensure the swift completion of projects.
At the same time, BCS’s maintenance and administrative staff have been able to complete standard summer cleaning, grounds, and clerical tasks.
This balance has been key in ensuring major renovations are on schedule to be wrapped-up by the time students return this fall.
“It’s been nice to see,” Sister John Ann concluded. “It’s really been a good opportunity for people to work together cooperatively.”
