Parents and Community Members,
Many of you may be wondering what the next steps is now that the bond has passed. There are many steps that the board has to consider throughout this process. The first step is to interview an owner’s representative that will work for the school to help in contract negotiations, quality control with contractors and architects and much more. This person will be the first hired and the last one that will be done. They will be with us for the entire project to make sure we are getting the most for the money.
Next we will hire an architect and soon after will be the Construction Manager at Risk. The Construction Manager at Risk is the construction manager for the job, but they also guarantee the job will be done on budget. They will work together to create a school that is within the budget and have a bid package ready by next winter. The subs will bid on the jobs at a determined date around January 2019. Construction will start soon after that with completion being the summer of 2020.
There is a lot of work and planning a head for Elder Grove. It is exciting knowing that we are making plans and building for the future of the school that will be here for many generations.
