The Richland School District on November 26, 2013, awarded the general contractor bid for the Chief Joseph Middle School HVAC Upgrades Project to TW Clark Construction, Spokane. The bid of $3.02 million was the lowest of five bids submitted. Construction work is expected to begin in April 2014 and be completed by August 2014. The existing HVAC roof top units are being replaced with a more efficient boiler/chiller system.
“TW Clark Construction has an excellent reputation for completing projects on time and within budget,” says Kevin Knodel, Executive Director of Capital Projects. “The Chief Joseph project is in good hands.”
TW Clark Construction has completed a number of school construction/renovation projects in the region including:
District residents approved a bond issue for the Chief Joseph upgrade and eight other projects in February 2013.
In May 2013, the Richland School Board selected ALSC Architects and MSI Mechanical Engineers as the firms responsible for replacing the current HVAC roof top units with a more efficient boiler/chiller system. Listed below is the project timeline.
