NARRAGANSETT—The School Committee discussed and approved three bid awards on Wednesday evening for improvements to various sections of Narragansett schools. At Narragansett Elementary School and the Pier School, the gymnasium floors will be refinished, and at the High School, the greenhouse will be the subject of a needs study in order to determine what renovations the structure must receive to become a more functional learning environment.
“Since I’ve been on the Building Committee, there has been a placeholder line item for the greenhouse, and things were always being pushed because we didn’t know where to start,” said School Committee Chair Tammy McNeiece. “The Building Committee has talked for the past two years to figure out what to do, and came to the conclusion that we needed to hire a consultant.”
Torrado Architects, based locally in Providence, has been awarded a bid worth $5,000 to conduct an investigation of the greenhouse facility behind NHS, the services of which were recommended by Gary Minett, Director of Facilities and Maintenance. The architect firm has been used exclusively by the school department for the development of the most recent school renovations, which were paid for through the bond process.
