UNITY, N.H. (AP) - Another construction firm has been hired to assist with building a new elementary school in Unity, N.H., which has faced delays.
In 2010, the Unity Elementary School became the first school in state history to be ordered closed for fire code violations. Voters passed a $4.7 million bond for a new school, which was supposed to be ready this past fall.
But the state Fire Marshal's Office issued a stop-work order on the building last summer because a complete set of plans had not been submitted for approval. An alternative window installation was also part of the reason for the work stoppage.
The firm Trumbull-Nelson of Hanover is managing the project. The company will work on getting the stop-work order lifted and develop cost estimates by early next month.
