AGC in Action - School Building Aid


AGC of NH was the only construction organization to testify on Senate Bill 192 before the Senate Education Committee on February 7th, 2017, asking the state to reinstate the State of New Hampshire's School Building Aid program that has been in moratorium since 2009. The NH Department of Education provided the committee with a list of schools that are in need of repair as well as the status of the debt incurred by the previous program. This year, for the first time, more than $10 million will be available annually as a match to local communities. However, since the Governor added a grant program for school building aid to the state budget, the committee voted to kill the legislation. School building aid will now be considered in House Bill 2 instead.

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


After months of collecting and studying data, AGC of NH released its findings regarding how different methods of construction can impact a company's ability to win a project with the University System of New Hampshire. The association looked back on more than 10 years of University building projects costing over $2 million, focusing on the various bid methods used by the University to determine if any one method was favored over another, and whether all contractors had equal opportunity. The findings showed that a high percentage of the University's projects that incorporated a committee selection process, very few of those projects went to New Hampshire contractors. The AGC report was included in the October 10th, 2016 issue of the AGC of NH newsletter.

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
