Port of Port Angeles approves $4 million for interior work on composites center

The construction costs to complete the center are mostly covered through outside grant funding.

PORT ANGLES — Port of Port Angeles commissioners agreed Monday to pay a company $4,146,240.90 for its work on the interior of the Composite Recycling Technology Center.

Rognlin’s Inc. finished the composites center and a final certificate of occupancy was granted in August. The center is now operational, and Peninsula College’s fall quarter is underway at the building.

The construction costs to complete the composites center are mostly covered through outside grant funding.

The port received $2 million from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, $1 million from the Washington State Clean Energy Fund and $1 million from the Clallam County Opportunity Fund, and had allocated $300,000 for the project in its own budget.

Costs came in 2.3 percent higher than expected, which wasn’t too far off from the original $4,052,000 bid, said Chris Hartman, director of engineering.

“That’s a pretty good number to hit,” he said.

The building also includes 80-kW photovoltaic and solar thermal hot water systems to help offset energy consumption from manufacturing.
