New Market, NH -Meridian Construction started the second phase of the Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School renovations.. The project, which is a continuation of the first phase of renovations that Meridian completed in 2013, will include fire and life safety improvements and upgrades. The first round of renovations included a refurbished science lab, new science storage, as well as restorations to classrooms and corridors, with work done in multiple areas, including mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire protection systems. The first phase was a huge success, with Meridian finishing the project approximately 10% below the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP), an exceptional result considering this was a renovation to a building built in the early 20th century. This time around, Newmarket Jr./Sr. High School’s second phase of renovations has a GMP of $1 million, and will focus on fire alarm and sprinkler systems. Meridian will demolish and install ramps, install new stairs, upgrade and rearrange doors, spray foam insulation to the underside of the roof deck, demolish the existing plaster ceiling system, install new acoustical ceiling tiles, and upgrade vinyl flooring.
