HAMPSTEAD – Chris Huston, Bread Loaf’s vice president of architecture, presented a revised renovation and construction proposal for Hampstead Central School to the School Board, including specific needs identified as priorities by board members.
The new proposal, presented at the Tuesday, Oct. 14 board meeting, would cost an estimated $4,243,731 and would include a one story addition. This would allow for the removal of the portable classrooms and provide four new classrooms that meet standard size requirements, as well as a room designed for music.
In addition, the proposal calls for renovating the kindergarten wing of the school that is now a single block wall, addressing energy and safety issues. The proposal includes replacement for the 1960 roof and mechanical replacement work. Also included is installation of a sprinkler system throughout the entire school, installation of a new septic system and provision of storage space.
