Northeastern to conduct another scan on high school renovations

Northeastern school officials approved a second thermal scan of the high school renovation now that the work is completed on the long-delayed project.

A previous inspection and thermal scan of the high school showed that insulation in various parts of the school had fallen down or was missing entirely. Brian Geller, the district’s director of operations, said the contractor, Lobar, has since repaired those areas at its own expense. 

Board president Mike Redding suggested doing a second scan. On Monday, the board agreed to do a second scan, which can cost up to $4,100.

Several change orders were on the agenda, as well. Tyler Kramlick, the board vice president, said the solicitor's office said it is OK to release the funds now to the contractors.
