On December 1, city council awarded a construction bid to Monteith Construction, Inc. The bid amount was $6,880,000. The two-story, 15,800 square-foot structure will be erected on a two-acre site, already owned by the city, at 10050 Durant Road. The parcel was previously planned for use as a park.
The project was first presented to City Council on August 15, 2017. On September 5 of that year, they approved the project budget, and the reprogramming of 1.3 acres of property for project use. On August 18, 2020, they approved the reprogramming of an additional 0.698 acres of city-owned property at 10050 Durant Road.
The RFQ for a professional Construction Manager at Risk was issued on August 21, 2018. Qualifications were received on September 28 of that year. The city entered into a master CMAR contract with Monteith in April 2020, including a pre-construction services scope in the amount of $39,000.
Monteith held an initial public bid opening on October 15, 2020, for multiple bid packages for first-tier subcontractors for construction of the project. As some of the bid packages did not have sufficient bids (three required) to open, they were re-advertised for bid and publicly opened on October 29, 2020.
