Londonderry school roofs eyed for repairs

(Continued)

Now, the planning and prioritizing begins.

District business administrator Peter Curro said it’s time to put the most dire work on the priority list and plan the timeframe to get started.

Major projects on the list for this summer’s schedule are paving the Matthew Thornton Elementary School parking lot, roofing work at the middle school, and some other roofing repairs at the high school.

“Those are the three big ones this summer,” Curro said.

Other smaller projects might also find themselves on the work order list for 2014.

Curro said the district is already working with contractors to plan some work over the course of several years, especially when it comes to roofing improvements.

He said all the financial information and costs would come before the School Board for approval.

By phasing in the jobs over a few years, he said, the district could save money in the long run.

Scheduling the work is a challenge; most jobs have to be done during school vacation months.
