Bid acceptance starts TCU - Lonsdale project

Wade Young

Construction at Tri-City United Elementary School received the green light Monday when the TCU School Board approved the bid package for the school’s campus.


The plans for the building call for eight new classrooms and restrooms located on the northeast portion of the building, north of the parking lot. Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, that building will become Pre-kindergarten to sixth grade campus, thereby freeing up space in Montgomery’s Middle and Elementary School buildings. 


The project’s contract amount of $2.36 million is part of the district’s $14.2 million building referendum that voters approved in February. David Maroney, President of the architect firm ATS&R, presented the information to the school board at its regular meeting. Maroney said there was a lot of interest in the project and was delighted the district received seven bids.


“I was delighted with the bids,” Maroney said. “I like to see what we saw and we’re getting what we need.”


The winning bid went to Mohs Contracting, Inc. of Owatonna. It included the base bid, along with eight alternate bids that were priced separately. Maroney explained that alternates often provide the project managers with a choice between different products that can define the addition or deletion of a portion of the work.
