Construction Method Update

April 19, 2010

At the last board meeting the school board approved looking into using an alternative method of bidding the construction of the new schools. We will be using what is called CM/GC, which stands for Construction Manager/General Contractor. In this construction method the district will put out a Request For Proposals (RFP) for a general contractor who will be able to take care of all aspects of the building project. It is our belief that the CM/CG method will also make it possible for us to do a better job of using local contractors and trades workers. We hope to continue our inventory of local skill this month. While we cannot guarantee local jobs, but we will do all we can within the legal requirements the district must follow.

The school board will conduct a public hearing about using this construction option at our next Town Hall Meeting, 7 pm, April 29th in the VHS Cafeteria.
