High School:

  • Library Air Conditioning units replaced. This will be completed in summer or early fall 2015
  • Tennis Court Renovation. This will be completed in summer or early fall 2015

The North Shore Buildings and Grounds Department will work closely with BBS Architects, Landscape Architects & Engineers and Savin Engineers PC, Construction Managers. We will meet weekly with all of the contractors to keep the projects moving forward and have them completed on time. The Construction Steering Committee will meet monthly or more as needed to keep the Board of Education up to date on our progress.
The Buildings and Grounds staff will also work diligently towards completing all of the projects outlined in the 2015-2016 budget.

This will be in conjunction with the normal summer cleaning of all of the building to ready them for the next school year.
