In June we installed roughly 6000 Square feet of 2 part closed cell spray foam on the foundation walls below the Scott and Williams Building with a 6 mil plastic vapor barrier over the sand floor sealed to the spray foam.
The former Scott & Williams factory was underutilized and was extremely contaminated by releases from storage tanks and the factory’s boiler complex. The Laconia Housing and Redevelopment Authority (LHA) purchased the property for redevelopment without understanding the full extent of contamination associated with the boiler complex. DES worked with LHA during the redevelopment of the property to ensure the contamination was addressed and to minimize the impact of the remedial process on the redevelopment schedule. The property has been redeveloped into the Normandin Square apartment complex with 60 apartments and several businesses.
