Winter storms have brought unanticipated delays in the expansion and renovation of the Sherman firehouse.
Twenty-five days of work were lost due to weather, according to the general contractor, Merit Associates. Additional delays occurred in the delivery of the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment. The completion date is now targeted for May, said town selectman Ed Hayes. Work being done is concentrated on the inside of the building. Merit Associates has increased the size of the crews currently working to make up for some lost time. Remaining exterior work of minor trim, sidewalks and the finished layer of blacktop on the parking lot, as well as landscaping, should be completed in April.
