Bensalem High School Renovation Project
On July 31, 2013, the Bensalem Township School District Board of School Directors and Administrators hosted a “Community Charrette” to provide the Bensalem community an opportunity to gain an understanding behind the plans for the renovation of Bensalem High School. We shared the why, when and how; provided our educational vision; showed the design presentation by EI Associates and D’Huy; provided small group tours of Bensalem High School and hosted a Question and Answer Session.

On Monday, November 23 from 6 to 8:30pm the District and the Bensalem Education Foundation co-hosted the Premiere/Open House of the Bensalem High School Performing Arts Center.
The areas which were identified containing ACM will be sealed off from public access during the abatement process. The removal of this asbestos containing materials follow strict federal and state guidelines, standards and regulations which require District’s environmental engineer to monitor the abatement process and provide reporting to the regulatory agencies that all ACM has been properly removed and disposed. These monitoring results must meet AHERA’s PCM air clearance standard following asbestos abatement procedures, and provide evidence that an airborne asbestos hazard did not exist within the areas sampled at the time of sampling. All sample postings are listed above.
The asbestos abatement commenced on or about Monday, March 7, 2016 and will continue through approximately March 28, 2016. Testing will be performed in accordance with AHERA’s PCM air clearance standards.
