AGC in Action - School Building Aid


AGC of NH plans to release the latest information regarding the future of reinstating the State of New Hampshire's School Building Aid program that has been in moratorium since 2009. The NH Department of Education has provided us with a list of schools that are in need of repair and the status of the debt incurred by the past program. 2017 should be the first year where more than $10 million dollars a year will be available as a match to communities. The information will be provided in the October 24th newsletter. (Join the association today if you are interested in getting involved on this topic.)

University System of NH - CM, Design Build & Lump Sum


After months of collecting and studying data, the AGC of NH released its findings regarding how the method of construction can impact a company's ability of getting awarded a project at the University of New Hampshire. The AGC looked back over 10 years of University building projects in excess of two million dollars. The association focused on the various construction methods used by the University to see if any trends favored one method over another, and if all contractors had equal opportunity in obtaining a given project. The information was provided in the October 10th AGC of NH newsletter available to members.

AGC Truck Weights Report & Survey Results


The AGC of NH has released its Truck Weight Overview. The report shows results of a survey the association conducted on local construction and trucking companies to determine how many are affected by the removal of a footnote on the state axle spacing chart. The report also examines safety and financial implications, federal and state truck weight laws, and comparisons with other New England states. The association worked with the state legislature to find a solution and was successful at passing necessary language at the state level. AGC continues to work with our Congressional delegation to fix this for the interstate highways as well. Click here
