At the March 8, 2021 Board of Education meeting, the Board of Education received an update on the PK-12 project from Tim Williams, Superintendent and Andy Rodgers, Summit Construction.
- Utility Pipeline has begun the installation of the pipeline that will bring gas to the property. The estimated time to complete this project is six weeks.
- Summit Construction is accepting bids for an early site package and the steel package for the project. Superintendent Williams and Mr. Rodgers expressed their concern with the cost of steel. They are both hoping to receive favorable bids for this part of the project but have concerns with the current steel market.
- The project is scheduled to begin in mid- April, with the first step being soil stabilization. In the upcoming week, we will have more information about this phase of the project.
- Summit Construction has a list of Pre-Qualified Contractors that will accept bids on each phase of the project. If companies are interested in being on the list, they should e-mail Mike Mendenhall, Owners Rep for Logan Elm Local School District at: [email protected]
