PITTSFIELD – School Administrative District 53 recently received a new 20 x 20-foot cold storage building that was located on school property adjacent to the Alternative Education building at Warsaw Middle School.
This building was made possible through the gracious collaborative efforts of the Somerset Career and Technical Center Building Trades Program, students and instructor who built the structure at their Skowhegan location. The district was responsible for the building material costs only; all labor costs were provided by the students learning their trade.
In order to relocate the building to the Warsaw Middle School site, the building was constructed so that it could be split into two 10 x 20-foot sections. Cianbro donated their time, personnel and equipment to transport the two building halves to the new site. They then used a heavy duty forklift to maneuver the two halves onto the concrete pads. It required two trips to get both halves of the building to Warsaw.
The cold storage building will be used for materials that can no longer be stored in closets under stairwells at Warsaw Middle School, and for special equipment and files that had previously been stored at the former Superintendent’s office.
