Asbestos Abatement Project at NHS - July 2018
We are replacing the deteriorating flooring in a classroom at Newington High School this summer. In preparation for the new flooring we are removing the existing carpet and underlying vinyl asbestos floor tile & mastic it is stuck to as an asbestos abatement project. Please be advised that asbestos abatement work will be taking place in Newington High School this summer break between July 16, 2018 and July 23, 2018.
The school will be partially occupied by children during the abatement process. The following programs will be using areas at Newington High School during the abatement:
- Parks & Rec summer programs will be using the Gym in the High School as a backup location if heavy rain washes out the outdoor programs.
- Band Camp will be using the Music Room and Auditorium area of the school.
Areas of the school undergoing abatement will be sealed-off from the occupied areas of the school with locked doors and appropriate signage. A full time environmental consultant will be monitoring the abatement work to ensure compliance with the contract specifications and Connecticut Department of Public Health codes and standards.
If there are any questions or concerns, please contact our designated project representative, Mr. Dick Vida, Director of Maintenance Services at (860) 665-8656.
Anticipated Project Start Date: July 16, 2018 at 7:00am
Anticipated Completion Date: July 23, 2018 at 3:30pm
