Air Conditioning Progress
The bid process for installing AC in all schools continues. There was a pre-bid meeting for contractors on August 28, 2019.
We had a good turn out of 12 individuals representing 7 firms. We are also actively contacting prime mechanical contractors in the region to garner additional interest in the project. The regional and national plan rooms/bidding networks have picked up the project. The project was advertised on August 18, 2019, in The Roanoke Times and Winston-Salem Journal newspapers, and, advertised in the Bristol Herald Courier, Kingsport Times-News, and Knoxville News Sentinel on August 25, 2019. We intensified the advertising in order to attract qualified bidders (contractors) to perform the work as well as get the attention of suppliers that provide components in the work.
