PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – County commissioners approved the architectural firm of LS3P (Boney Architects) to begin construction on the old Topsail High School. County Manager Mickey Duvall says that the architect who will be working on the project is actually the grandson of the building's original builder.
The board approved spending $294,175 to begin construction.
The County Manger says the plan right now is to have the main building's reconstruction completed by November, when the lease expires for the Pender County office buildings in the Hampstead annex.
He says, at this point, the building will stay in county hands and not be sold.
The old school, which sits empty on Highway 17 in Hampstead, was built in 1925.
