Summer is always a busy time at Guilford Public Schools, with tons of improvement projects planned at nearly all the district schools, according to Director of Operations and Facilities Cliff Gurnham.
"As always, we do have a large number of projects planned for this summer," said Gurnham.
A.W. Cox School has a number of upgrades taking place, including new windows and doors, as well as renovations to the main entrance and offices and floor and carpet replacements. Gurnham said the cost is estimated at $80,000.
Elisabeth C. Adams Middle School will receive replacements for ventilation, air conditioning, and ceilings. Upgrades to ventilation will be made in the southern section of Adams, formerly considered an open space area. Because that area is now closed in and broken into different sections, the HVAC system needs to be redesigned. Action Air Systems of Manchester was awarded the contract for these improvements for $679,947.
Another improvement is to eight bathrooms at Melissa Jones School. Pat Munger Construction will perform the work for $96,469, which is covered by a 2011-'12 bond issue that still has a $108,847 balance.
Additionally, "At Adams, a whole new clock system will go in...and we're also doing some work at the bus yard to replace the fuel oil tank over there this summer," Gurnham said. "We have a busy summer ahead of us."
