Port Angeles: Lots of interest in Jefferson School reconstruction contract

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles School District has attracted more than 33 construction and trades businesses interested in the huge Jefferson School reconstruction project.

“I am very excited about the number of firms interested in the project,” said Charlie McClain, School Board president.

The $4.8 million project, now in the bidding process, has 13 general contractors considering placing bids, including three Peninsula companies: Primo Construction Co. of Sequim, and Aldergrove Construction Co. and Vision Builders, both of Port Angeles, said Jim Jones, executive director of business and operations for the school district.

“We are really hoping to be able to work with one of the local contractors,” Jones said.

In addition, electrical and mechanical companies are reviewing Jefferson plans.

Contractors must have bids completed and submitted by 3 p.m. on Oct. 25.

Bids will be publicly opened that same day at the Vern Burton Community Center at 4:05 p.m., Jones said.
