The Mt. Pleasant Community School District is ready to enter into phase two of the elementary air-conditioning project as School board members awarded bid packages Monday night.

Superintendent John Henriksen said he and Nick Ford, of Woodruff Construction, who the district had hired as the general contractor of the project, had reviewed the bids once they were received on Thursday, Feb. 8 and had recommendations. The overall project was broken into four packages — general construction, controls, mechanical and electrical. Within the mechanical and electrical packages, Van Allen Elementary School was bidded seperately as the building requires a bit more work.

For general construction, Frank Millard Company came in with the lowest bid of $452,640. Tricon Construction was the only other bidder on the package, coming in at $514,000.

Johnson Controls was the only bidder for the controls package. Their bid was for $371,000. Four companies placed bids for the mechanical package — Frank Millard Company, Odessa Mechanical, Proctor Mechanical and Brockway. Frank Millar Company bid $592,500 for Van Allen Elementary School and $635,500 for work to be done at Salem, Harlan and Lincoln Elementary Schools.

Mohrfeld Electric was awarded the electrical project as he bid $169,500 for work to be done at Van Allen and $148,500 at Salem, Harlan and Lincoln. Other bidders on the project were Frank Millard Company and DeVries Electric.

The total price for phase two will be $2,369,640. Board President David McCoid reminded the audience the total price of the project, phase one and two, will be $2.95 million dollars. “That’s a little less than the $3 million we were planning for,” he said.

The project is set to begin as soon as students are released this summer. “Over (spring) break, contractors will do some walk throughs so they can make sure they are ready to go just as soon as the kids are out of the building,” said Henriksen.

Contractors will begin work on June 1, and the project is slated for completion the first week of August.
