Pool general construction bids again over budget

A new round of bidding on general construction (contract #3) of the Albion swimming pool was held last Wednesday, but the bids were still substantially over the original engineer’s estimate.
Christiansen Construction Co. of Pender, NE, was the apparent low bidder with a base bid of $1,340,586. It was one of three bids opened Wednesday, July 17, at Albion City Hall.
The engineer’s estimate for general construction was about $1,095,000, so the low bid is more than $245,500 over the contract budget estimate.
With the three pool conracts combined, the total project would be over budget by $105,335, or about 3.3 percent.
Albion City Council will hold a special meeting Tuesday, July 30, at 7:30 p.m. to decide how they will proceed.
