of Cobb Hill Construction (CHC) and Tom ? of Sheerr McCrystal
Palson (SMP) were in attendance to review the Construction Document
Package (CDP) for Town Hall prepared by SMP. Tom pointed out that
the ramp inside the addition that was initially shown has been
removed. The external ramp remains, however. The internal ramp
is no longer need. The exterior grade will be brought up the 3
difference. The ramp decking will be constructed with pressure-treated
The roof will be 40-year architectural shingle, Harvard Slate
gray, to match the churchs roof. External doors will be
wood with fiberglass edge form core. There will be no glass
in external door going to basement. Currently there are four (4)
panels for internal doors; will try to get same for external doors;
maybe six (6) panels.
There was some discussion on the deck, rooms and outside elevations;
and compliance with the American Disability Act (ADA) for the
bathrooms and path leading from the outside ramp to the parking
area. There are 8 risers with wide treads on stairs down
to town hall basement. There will be a skim coat slab for the
crawl space; vinyl composite tile flooring for kitchen, two bathrooms
and for the corridor. The use of hard woods for the corridor was
discussed but it was decided that having vinyl composite tile
flooring would stand up better to wear and tear and would be less
expensive. There will be one window for each bathroom and one
double-width window for the kitchen area above the sink. There
will be taller windows in the additions back.
The basement will have access from the outside, as well. There
will be three (3) wall sconces in the corridor; a double bowl
sink in the kitchen area; florescent lighting in workspaces in
both bathrooms and kitchen. There is no hardware schedule in plans.
Kent stated that CHC should include the cost of priming the addition
but not the cost of painting.
Jeremy asked if the CDP needed to be presented to HDC or during
a public hearing. Kent stated he was not certain. Mike Capone
said that the Committee should probably go to the HDC but not
necessary. Mike said the Committee needs to look at the ordinance
that requires 30 days notice but is non-binding. If it is determined
that a public hearing is required, a notice in the Sunday Monitor
for two Sundays and a posting at the Country Store are to be provided.
Steve stated that the additions foundation needed to be
poured by mid-November.
