The Lancaster School District was planning to

do a major roofting project to the Middle School

building this Summer. That’s not going to

happen, as the heating system at the Winskill

Elementary School has become a priority.

The reason…corroding heat pipes in the

older portion of the building that was built in


District Administrator Rob Wagner says the

the project will include replacing all the

piping for the heating system in the 1952 portion

of the building, installing new univents, and

installing three new boiler units. Both Winskill

buildings will be converted to a hot water

heating system. The 1952 portion currently has

steam heat. Wagner says the

estimated cost of the work could be between

$450-to-$700,000. The engineering firm of

Angus-Young and Associates

of Janesville was hired last week by the

school board to develop the specifications and

bid documents for the project.


The heating system to be replaced in the 1952

portion of the Winskill Elementary School is

original to the building. Wagner also says the

heating system in the Annex Building…the

oldest district building…will not be converted

as part of the project.
