Discussion of the new primary school was one of many topics discussed at Tuesday night’s monthly Board of Education meeting. Members reviewed some of the slides presented by Altman+Barrett during the September 4 called meeting along with another proposed layout. They also reviewed an advertisement for land surveyors of the proposed site, a risk hazard assessment report, as well as a Phase I Environmental Assessment.

A vote was taken on the construction delivery method for the new school. The board voted to approve Superintendent Steve Smith’s recommendation of using Construction Manager at Risk as the delivery method. It entails a guaranteed maximum price based upon construction documents and specifications at the time of the price as well as any reasonably inferred items or tasks.
