WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A final list of construction issues for the Waynesboro Area Senior High School is being developed, with many of those repairs planned for this summer when students aren't in the building, school officials said Tuesday. "Substantial completion is done," Business Administrator Caroline Dean said, saying that point was reached months ago. School leaders broke ground for the $46 million renovation and expansion project in January 2007. Construction added more than 100,000 square feet, including a new 1,600-seat auditorium and three-court gymnasium.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- The Waynesboro Area School District will host a building dedication May 2 for the renovated and expanded high school. Almost 41 months since school officials broke ground for the project, the public ceremony planned from 2 to 4 p.m. will serve as the symbolic transfer of the building from the architects and construction crews to the school district. Superintendent James Robertson said they might hand over keys or a plaque to mark the occasion. "We have some punch list items, but pretty much everything is done," Robertson said of the construction.

A judge will hear arguments on May 21 in a pair of lawsuits filed against the Waynesboro Area School District in which the plaintiffs are seeking almost $3.5 million in damages. Contractors who worked on the Waynesboro Area Senior High School renovation and expansion project three years ago are suing for breach of contract and other complaints. General contractor Lobar Inc. is asking for $2.9 million in damages, saying it incurred additional labor, material and overhead costs associated with a deficient and defective design for the building's steel structure.
