HIGH SCHOOL ELECTRICAL UPDGRADES COMMENCE
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini joined with State Representative Brian S. Dempsey (D-Haverhill), Superintendent Raleigh Buchanan and school officials to kick off the second phase of the Haverhill High School Renovation project.
This phase of the project represents a $2.3 million upgrade of the High School’s electrical wiring systems, enabling the school to operate more advanced lighting, HVAC, operational, informational and computer systems, as well as new generators. This project is 68% funded by the Commonwealth through its School Building Assistance (SBA) program. The remainder is being funded through bonding by the City.
The project is a rare second funding opportunity by the Commonwealth’s School Building Authority (SBA), which is funding 68% of the cost (over $1.5 million). The SBA has lauded Haverhill’s focused school renovation project, which has been on-time and on budget, undertaken without a local Proposition 2½ override.
The project begins in August with trench work that will be completed before the September 1 school opening date. Work will occur outside of the school activities and be completed in 2010. Maiuri Electric of Danvers was the qualified low bidder and will be the General Contractor for the project, working with 4 separate subcontractors.
The Mayor also noted that bids for the exterior site work at the High School campus will be released before the end of August.
