Last Tuesday the Board of Supervisors opened bids for the construction for Woodbury County Social Services at 1211 Tri-View Avenue. The RML Architect’s estimate for this project was $268,766.40. The architect added a 10% contingency as this is an existing building that is being remodeled and could run into unforeseen conditions. That brought the total estimated construction cost for the project to $295,643.04.
Global Engineering of Sioux City was the apparent low bidder at a cost of $228,000, which is $40,766.40 below the architect’s estimate without the contingency.
