2 and 3. Tenders were originally called for this work by the Department of Militia and Defence, the lowest, $34,375.30, being submitted by Beatty, Reinke and Lachance. It was found necessary to alter the plans and specifications prepared by the Department of Militia and Defence in order to strengthen the building; and when the lowest tenderers were asked for a price on these alterations, they submitted one of $8,844.84. This
was reported by the chief architect as being fair and reasonable.
The site originally donated by the town of Pembroke was found unsuitable for the building, and another site was subsequently obtained. This change also necessitated a further expenditure of $4,455.01. A change in the flooring has been made at an additional outlay of $560, and minor changes in the stairways have been authorized at an expenditure of $90.75.
