HR School Board Approves Max Price For New May Street School

The Hood River County School District board approved a guaranteed maximum price for construction of the new May Street Elementary School of $24.981 million.  The district has been working with its general contractor for the project, Kirby Nagelhout Construction, on value engineering to bring the cost down after contractor bids came in that reflected an extraordinarily busy construction market.  District Superintendent Dan Goldman says when the bids first came in, they were at $27 million.  He noted most of the changes they made to save money were cosmetic, and should allow other projects planned through the bond measure to proceed.  Construction work on the new school adjacent to the current May Street Elementary will commence in February.
