BHS structural issues defined

August 14, 2013

    Structural engineers hired by North Adams Community Schools to address wall stabilization issues and deficiencies at Bellmont High School presented their findings and recommendations to the school district's board of education during Tuesday evening's monthly board meeting. Those recommendations came with a $2 million price tag.
    Matthew Capaldi and Daniel Drewyor, representatives from Structure Tech, an engineering consulting firm based in Farmington Hills, Mich., reported on structural weaknesses in the 45-year-old high school building that have led to bowed walls and the cracking and separation of some corner joints.
    The areas identified as trouble spots included the swimming pool area, the south side of the gymnasium, the library and the theater areas.
    Further details in today's print and e-editions.
