UNITY, N.H. (AP) - Workers are resuming construction of a new elementary school in Unity, N.H., more than a month after the state Fire Marshal's office ordered them to stop.
The stop work order was issued June 20 in response to the school district's inability to meet proposed deadlines to providing a set of architectural plans for the fire marshal's office to review.
The Eagle-Times reports the school's architect, Scott Vaughn, said he submitted the architectural plans to the fire marshal's office on July 12.
Vaughn said numerous design changes, including a switch from a preconstructed concrete wall system to cast-in-place concrete walls slowed down the plans.
The plan is for students to start work at the old school building and transfer to the new one in the middle of the school year.
