Engan Associates was hired by the City of Kensington to provide a conditions assessment of the current South Elementary School in Kensington.  In July of 2020, the City received correspondence from Mr. Hogie asking if the City was interested in negotiating a contract to take possession of the current South Elementary building to avoid demolition costs for the district.  The City of Kensington felt it was important to determine the actual condition of the building to help the City determine if they have any interest in taking possession of the building.  Engan Associates, along with structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers provided the City of Kensington with a report that addressed the following items: site and pavement grading, sidewalks, building façade, roofing, foundation, flooring, interior paint & ceilings, gym/stage, lower level, office space, common spaces, ADA accessibility exterior, ADA accessibility interior/plumbing, electrical lighting/electrical service, mechanical, HVAC, fire sprinkler system, and structural items.  Engan Associates also submitted a clarification letter to the City of Kensington after seeing numerous inaccuracies regarding the report at the school board meeting and conveyed by Mr. Hogie in the school board article published in the he Grant County Herald on Wednesday, October 27, 2021.  The City of Kensington has posted the report in its entirety along with Mr. Engan’s responses.
