Haverhill Councilor's proposal could save city, taxpayers millions

Requires parts of new Hunking School to be built off site


LePage said the MSBA has told the city that off-site or modular construction could be reimbursable, just as long as the project would result in a building that is cost effective, energy efficient, educationally sound and capable of functioning as an educational facility for children for at least 50 years. Other requirements would have to be met as well.

LePage said the MSBA indicated that “modular construction” in this context refers to pre-designed building or units or buildings that have been assembled and equipped with internal plumbing, electrical or similar systems prior to movement to the site where they are attached to each other, affixed to a foundation and connected to external utilities.
