Chief Joseph construction bid awarded

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:

  • Cottonwood Elementary School, Kennewick School District
  • Wahitis Elementary School, Othello School District
  • Transportation Center, Walla Walla School District

District residents approved a bond issue for the Chief Joseph upgrade and eight other projects in February 2013.
