4 Concord schools need quick transition from steam to gas heating


CONCORD - Four Concord schools are in need of a quick transition to gas heating if they want to be warm this time next year.

The quick transition is because Concord Steam announced plans to close earlier this year. Two elementary schools, the middle school and the high school currently use steam to warm their buildings and water.

To help the process move quickly, school board members decided to go with trusted architects and engineers instead of opening up a bidding process, according to the Concord Monitor. A bidding process usually takes several months to complete.

The conversions are expected to cost between $8.3 million and $21.7 depending on necessary upgrades, according to Concord Superintendent Terri Forsten. The completion date is expected to be Oct. 13, 2017.
