Construction Manager Trace Hendric (from RCHendric & Sons) updated the board on the budget for the bond project. He stated that each category averaged about five bids per category. In his experience with other school bonds, there have been some some categories that have only 1 or 2 bids. Due to the high number of bids and the low dollar amount the bids, the bond budget includes approximately $791,000 balance, which represents a 17% contingency amount. The initial budget included a 10% contingency. Some of these funds will be held back for future technology purchases.
The Board was very pleased with the bids and the overall budget.
