Manchester firm chosen for Nashua school project
Last month, the committee, which is made up of both members of the Board of Education and the Board of Aldermen, heard presentation from four different firms. After mulling it over, they decided on Lavallee-Brensinger of Manchester.
But the recommendation wasn’t unanimous.
“The low bidder is a reputable company but the majority of the committee expressed a preference for a local architect,” said Ryder.
“It’s a serious problem,” he said. “We are never going to get anyone from outside to bid on our jobs.”
Lavallee-Brensinger has been involved in a number of school construction projects in Nashua, including the design of Nashua High School North and the renovation of Nashua High School South. Last year, the city hired the firm to assess the condition of Broad Street, Birch Hill Sunset Heights and Main Dunstable elementary schools, so they were already familiar with the building.
“I’m satisfied with the recommendation,” said Mosher who added there was more to consider that just the fees. “You have to look at the whole picture.”
