Bulkeley High School will get new bathrooms, and the University High School of Science and Engineering will get new computers under spending approved by the Hartford School Building Committee this week.
The committee voted to pay $294,000 to install new bathrooms on the third and fourth floors of Bulkeley High School. The contract was awarded to Scope Construction Co. Inc. of New Britain, the lowest bidder of seven companies. The bid was $155,000 under the original estimate for the project.
The bathrooms will be added so 9th- and 10th-graders will have a facility separate from the 11th- and 12th-graders.
The project is expected to be complete before students return to school in August.
The committee also approved spending $300,184 to purchase computers, mounting brackets, printers, telephones and other technology equipment. The money is divided among six companies. University High School, on Mark Twain Avenue, is currently under construction in a project that is expected to cost $41.6 million.
