Immediate work required at LAHS, Aspen

Critical infrastructure work needs to be completed at area schools, and it needs to be done as quickly as possible.

That was the central message delivered by Steve Girrens, president, LAPS Board of Education, to attendees at the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce’s monthly business breakfast today.

“It’s time now that we really have to do something a lot more significant to keep our schools’ infrastructures viable to support our education,” Girrens said. “The schools are the crown jewel of our future.”

In April, the LAPS board appointed a special bond committee comprised of local engineers and construction specialists to evaluate the status of the board’s recapitalization projects. The group worked for 10 months to validate the work that current architectural research consultants were doing, who have been working for LAPS since 1998.

The bond committee concluded that critical infrastructure work had to be performed at several local schools, with the most immediate changes being required at Los Alamos High School and Aspen Elementary.

“As a result of a walk-through evaluation from the local committee, the programs and projects started to come together,” Girrens said.
