GREENCASTLE, Pa. — The architect for the Greencastle-Antrim middle and senior high school connector addition asked school board members Thursday to consider replacing the campus' outdated electrical service switchgear this summer.

EI Associates Senior Vice President Mark Barnhardt asked the board to start the replacement of the campus' electrical service this summer before beginning the $28.5 million construction project.

According to information Barnhardt provided to the board, "the primary service switchgear, to be relocated, is near the end of its operational life."

The estimated cost of the project is $600,000 ($500,00 for site electric relocation and $100,000 for site fiber optic relocation).

William Fleischer, an electrical designer with Moore Engineering in Lancaster, Pa., said the campus electrical service is where the new building addition is proposed and the service feeds every building in the district.

"We suggest doing this over the summer due to some power outages," Fleisher said.

He estimated the outages could last a day or two.
